I know that I am not alone when I commend our mayor and council for taking on a tough job and doing their utmost to run our city effectively and efficiently.
It was only a few short months ago that the citizens of Greenwood went to the polls to elect a mayor and council. It is everyone’s civic duty to vote and once the votes are counted the hard work begins. Whether your choices for mayor and council were successful or not, now is the time for everyone to give those elected our support and move forward.
It becomes hard to move forward when every move, decision and statement is being scrutinized and criticized, and not always in a constructive manner. Our council members spend countless hours in meetings bringing our voices to the table. They spend time away from their family and friends to represent our community.
They are called day and night with concerns and complaints to which they try their best to rectify or at least make “better.” They do their best to make informed decisions and try to do what is right.
To our mayor and council—hold your heads high! I’m fairly sure you don’t do it for the ever so small stipend you receive, but for the love of Greenwood and the well-being of all citizens within the community. All of you are to be commended in the biggest way possible. Your dedication does not go unnoticed nor is it unappreciated.
– Ann Mudrie, Greenwood
