This letter is in response to last week’s letter to the editor from Dave Pritzlaff. Although Mr. Pritzlaff has admitted to some bad math when it comes to when he was a member of the Farmington City Council (2004-2008) he has not corrected the mistake on the flyers he is handing out or on his website. I have been mayor from 2009 until present; I have never missed a city council meeting, EDA meeting or any council workshops.
With all the disenchantment with government these days, it’s important to recognize when government gets it right, particularly when it’s due mainly to the efforts of one person.
State Rep. Pat Garofalo deserves such recognition.
We moved here two years ago from a beautiful, neighboring state. We had visited Minnesota numerous times and knew well of its reputation for beautiful lakes and a citizenry which enjoyed the great outdoors year-round. So it was quite a shock for us when we first used the wonderful walking and bike path out our backdoor to discover the amount of trash that littered this route.
I am writing to say “thank you” to everyone who came and visited with me during my in-district office hours March 19 at the Farmington City Hall and my town hall on April 30 at the Farmington High School.
I want to thank all of the District 192 Community Education employees, high school staff, high school students and other volunteers who helped plan and organize the recent prom night for River Valley Project Explore consumers.
I would like to extend my congratulations to council member Fogarty and newly elected council member Jason Bartholomay. Now that the theatrical stage has cleared, I hope everyone can get down to the business at hand.
Another Christmas has come and gone and the residents of Farmington should be proud of their generosity to those less fortunate. When I was promoted to chief I had no idea the monumental task ahead of me. Chief Siebenaler had started the Toys for Town program and ran it successfully for 18 years. This year was another year of economic roubles for some, which resulted in the program’s largest demand to date. It would be impossible for me to remember everyone who played a role, so I will tro to thank everyone this way.
Farmington residents are fortunate to have Julie May as a candidate for Farmington City Council. Julie is a capable and competent leader who has served — and continues to serve — the Farmington community in multiple capacities.
The last several weeks have been great for this Opinion page. Week after week we have featured a healthy collection of commentary from residents with something to say about tightly contested city and school board races.
