As I sit here reading your recent announcement of not re-running, I am saddened. I must admit I was not on your side in 2009, having lived in District 1 for many years prior, I would say I was satisfied with Ms. Bennett. But, oh have the times changed.
Over your term, you have proven to me, and I hope many other district citizens, you are for the people. You did not vote to please our current mayor, but instead voted for what was "right." Your work on the recent TIF, the vote against a blue thing, and countless of other decisions you made, were/are extremely appreciated.
I wish you, Ms. Scott, all the best in your future. You are very much appreciated and adored. May your time with family be precious and long.
I know it would be selfish to beg you to reconsider, so I won't. Even though I have tears in my eyes.
May your life, family and friends be blessed.
Rene Anne Wood
District 1 Citizen
P.S. Mr. McCullough and Mr. Ware, you will have some big heels to fill.
