This will be my thirty-fifth weekly column since I took office as Mayor last January. Over that time, I have tried to use this opportunity to both inform and entertain while providing information about how City government operates and advising our residents of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. I have also recognized from time to time some of the folks who make Absecon such a wonderful community. By all accounts, these columns have been generally well received, and with the Current’s cooperation, I intend to continue them for the rest of my tenure. That said, with the first snow flurries of the winter, it seems an appropriate time to take stock of my first year in office and attempt to relate what it has been like serving as your Mayor.
