City Council Office
Just a quick note as I leave office to say THANK YOU to all city employees. It has been a great 8 years and I very much appreciate the support and feedback I have received from every department. It is difficult to be career employees and have to "train" transient employees like myself. Your ability to bring me up to speed and to patiently tell me when I was wrong will always be appreciated.
A special thank you to the LPD Northeast Team for dropping off my material every Thursday and for being so responsive to issues that I contacted them about. You were always friendly and willing to work a short conversation into your home visits. (My grandsons may not visit again now they know the police will not be stopping by grandpa's house) Thank you also to those who have served on the PRT team and Health Board for allowing me to take part. And a HUGE thank you to Mary Meyer who is really the person who keeps the City Council office purring along. Thanks to everyone from the City Clerk's Offices, City Law, Russ, Conan and Public Works who made the weekly meetings go every week.
While some of the uneducated continue to support stereotypes of "government employees" those of us who have the pleasure of working with you know better. The vast majority of city and county employees are proficient, efficient and helpful to the public. We are a great city due to those efforts. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
