From the Mayor's Desk.....

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Thank you for all you do in making our community a special place in which to live. In the midst of the trials of 2014, new hope has blossomed in the form of renewed commitment to making Bucyrus the best small town in Ohio and America. Each day I am thankful for all of you and wish you peace and joy over the Holidays and a wonderful 2015.

There are too many people to thank and too little space in this column but please know that our community is made better by the efforts made by individuals and organizations to help those less fortunate, especially at Christmas. Our city administration is in your debt. I have enjoyed being your Mayor for the last six months and I will work hard to be worthy of the office that has been entrusted to me.

Merry Christmas to all.
