Grier Says Farewell As Councilman

81

 

grierDear Residents  and Business Owners in the City of Milford:

I want to take this opportunity to thank Milford residents, members of City Council and City staff for having the pleasure to serve  as one of the ls Ward Council Representatives over the past six years. Due to work obligations and my desire to spend more time with my wife and daughter, I have decided not to run for  another term on Milford City Council.

I feel  so fortunate to have  had the opportunity to  represent my constituents as their council person in  a community where I was born  and raised. Over that six years, I am proud of how far this city has come. To be part of the future planning of a town you love is extremely rewarding.

It is with confidence that I leave behind a Council that is full of members who  care deeply about the future of this community  and who  come to work on Monday nights with the  best interest of the City  at heart. While I have learned a  great deal  about business, politics, municipal government  and life in general during my six  years in this position,  those valuable  lessons will  be used as I continue to develop as a father,  husband, business owner  and community member.

In closing, I sincerely encourage our residents to become involved in the many events  and organizations this great community  has to offer. Public service may be something you have never really considered and I especially want to encourage our younger citizens to give it a shot. It is easy to stand on the sidelines and give input, but you can really make a difference by taking on a leadership role  and simply getting involved.

Sincerely,

GarrettL. Grier III

1st Ward Council Representative
