Letter: Thanks for serving, Mick

Dear Editor:

A hearty “thank you” to our departing mayor.

And the “thank you” is not for any particular policy or action but simply for serving!

Nobody can please all the people all the time — or even some of the time. The time commitments of public office, and the personal diatribes to which office holders are too often subjected, greatly contribute to the lack of candidates.

Mick stepped up and served his community as he thought best (diatribes notwithstanding).

To those who didn’t agree with him and who disagree with any other public officials, the answer is simple: Put your name on the ballot!

Mick served, contributed and deserves thanks for stepping up.

James DeFrancia
