Tribute to Mayor DeWitte
To the Editor:
Having lived in St. Charles for over 55 years, I have witnessed and worked with many of our mayors as a resident and a business owner. This is a job that requires significant time commitment, efficiency, great people skills, wisdom and heart. Mayor Don DeWitte has given tremendous amounts of these talents to us.
When I read that Mayor DeWitte would not be running again for mayor, I felt an immediate loss. As the compensation is almost token for the amount of his commitment, my first thought is where will we find another individual to fill his shoes? Who has the resources to give the time, without true compensation, with the same energy and focus? Whomever you are, best wishes for the gift to our community.
Thank you Mr. DeWitte. We have loved the results of all your efforts and drive to keep the heart of St. Charles beating and growing during the worst economic times of our adult lives. The beauty of the city has continued through all of this, in no small part, because of the focus of Mayor DeWitte. I do recognize that many employees of the city have fulfilled his directions, and I acknowledge this gratefully.
Best wishes to you as you commit your talents to Wine Sergi, a well established insurance organization in St. Charles.
