Over the past year I have seen a few posts where the council has been harshly criticized for whatever reason, often in a tone that would not be used in person. And I too may be guilty on a few St Augustine posts.
Anyways, I just wanted to tell the Council and Officers that I appreciate the work that you volunteer to do. And I apologize if I made any comments that rubbed anybody the wrong way. As a side note, I have been intrigued by the way the Indian debate took place in the film Dances With Wolves. The dissenting party complimented the other...something like "..One Nut speaks with much wisdom and experience, but I believe...." The parties are all respected and given a way to save face. I like that and I think I'll give it a try.

Again, your efforts are much appreciated!
Thanks!

DonD

Nice thread Don, and a well deserved Thank You should come from everyone of us. Being involved at their level is a thankless position, and there is absolutely no possible way to please everyone. Their service is not to be self serving, but for the betterment of the organization as a whole. For that, I'm grateful.

Having been there, it is a thankless "volunteer" job...serving on Council is a really hard job, trust me on that. All this and work for a living as well. I give them all really high marks and thanks.
