Letters to the Editor

Letter: A heartfelt thank you

To the Editor:

Several members of my family attended the Memorial Day Parade in Geneva. Included in our group was my 87-year-old father-in-law, who had traveled from eastern Pennsylvania to attend our daughter’s graduation from Geneva High School. He is a World War II veteran and wore his veteran’s cap with pride.

As he passed our position on the route, Mayor Kevin Burns spotted my father-in-law and broke from the procession to engage him in conversation, which concluded with a sincere and heartfelt thank you from the mayor for his service. My father-in-law is humble about his service, but we could tell that exchange meant something to him.

There was no script or cameras for this moment. It happened, I think, because Mayor Burns looks beyond the politics of the moment and seeks real connection with those he serves. We may lose him to a larger stage some day, but – until then – he has our support as the voice and face of Geneva.

Well done, Mayor Burns.
