In the past few years I have had several occasions to contact the city council members. I often dealt with Rani and she was great at running with the “football” so to speak.

The reasons for the interactions include sewer lines and traffic issues among some others.

All the council members have been responsive and pleasant.

My concerns were dealt with in a reasonable amount of time.

I am often critical of the local governments' actions.

So I thought that I should also compliment the actions of our local politicians that have worked to resolve in positive ways problems that I have presented.

We will see a changing of the guard soon with the upcoming elections.

Kyle Bailey will be stepping down at the end of his term.

I wanted say thank you to him for many, many years of dedicated service to our community. I also want thank the council members in general for the dedication I know it takes to serve in those positions.

So “thank you” for the hard work and missed meals and all that it takes to represent us.

—John Hartley
