From the September 2014 Clive City Newsletter
As of the writing of this column, it is September 11, 2014. Indeed, you will read this well after today, a day that changed the United States of America forever. Like all of you, I remember as if it were yesterday, exactly what I was doing when the incredible events of 911 unfolded….a day that none of us will forget, nor should we. However, as I remember and consider the tragedy that occurred, I am moved to admire and appreciate the many public servants that perished in the tragedy, what they stood for and to an even greater extent, those who survived. Those that were given another day to be with their families, friends and to continue serving their communities. It is with this thought that I encourage all of us to be thankful that we live in Clive, Iowa. That we have police, firefighters, emergency responders and many other faithful public servants that work hard for all of us. As Mayor, it gives me great pride to receive letters on a regular basis from residents sharing a positive experience as a result of service provided by one of our staff. Yes indeed, we are truly blessed. So, on the anniversary of 911, may we never forget those that were lost on that day but may we always maintain the perspective of thankful appreciation for those who serve us so well in our community today.
As always, it is an honor and a privilege to serve as your Mayor. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you may have.
