Sorry, I'm just seeing that this picture was waiting for post approval.  My bad.

I am voting Column 3 tomorrow.

I'm proud of the work that this administration has done over the last eight years and hope we can continue on our current trajectory.

If anybody is undecided or confused by all the mailings, feel free to message me.

I will miss Ted. We all will.

When he started in 2016, it did not take long for City Hall employees to see his level of commitment, his genuine desire to make a difference, and his ability to get things done. "Done" was his favorite word. He put an emphasis on setting goals and seeing them come to fruition. He put a lot of confidence in his department heads to establish goals and was willing to trust and support their vision.  He was a true manager who expected results but was also compassionate and understanding with those that worked for him. He was a creative thinker and never afraid to float ideas. He could be very determined but also patient. One expression of his that I will retain is "patience is what you do while you are waiting." Another one is, "this job will never be cheaper to do than it is right now." He could be very decisive. He was an early riser and had a long commute. Despite the drudgery, especially in the wake of Covid, he kept up morale. He was responsive to concerns from the council, employees, and the public he served.

And so we will miss him.

I just saw this on Facebook. Very sad and to hear about Skip's passing. He was a big part of our community.

Great picture!

RIP Eddie.
