Appreciation serving a community of spirit

To the editor:

I want to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the citizens of Ward 2 for allowing me to serve as your Alderman.

The past 5 Ĺ years have given me a singular appreciation for the layers of complexity that make up Municipal Government that can only be learned in the trenches. Public service at any level is a difficult, yet exceptionally rewarding, task.

To all who have served, are continuing to serve, or have the propensity to do so in the future, I applaud you. As an Alderman, I have been afforded the opportunity to work alongside wonderful, hardworking, dedicated individuals. To all of you, I am extremely grateful.

[to top of second column in this letter]

Lincoln is not unlike many communities in Illinois. We have our struggles, but I can tell you first hand that we also have a tremendous number of successes. This community has heart, compassion, and desire. This community spirit is what made me want to serve, and Iím glad I did!
