To the Citizens of Simpsonville
I have served this city as a City Council Representative for Ward VI to the best of my ability for eight years. I chose to not run for re-election.
In the eight years I have been on council, there were only 18 months that I was in the majority. All the rest, I have been in the minority. During all those times, I did speak out on issues I considered to be important to you as citizens. I made a lot of new friends and probably some enemies. The friends, I wouldn’t change. The enemies, maybe we should have tried a little harder to get to know each other.
I retired from the Postal Service in 2016 and, at the end of this term, I will be fully retired. I do not know what the future holds, but I will give it my best.
There’s a quote from Erma Bombeck that I love. “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, “I used everything You gave me.”
May God bless you and your families and may God bless Simpsonville. I wish the city well.♦
