Ms Gale. I know the whole story and the real credit is not going to the right person. You need to thank your head water man for watching out for the citys money. Nothing against the Mayor but nothing was mentioned in any of the articles about what he did. Just sayin, credit needs to go where credit is due!You mean debt like the Rend Lake water fiasco? You know, when the mayor stopped payment, was roundly criticized, then turned out to be right in the end, saving Sesser residents hundreds of thousands of dollars? The RLCD went to the extreme of trying to extort the citizens of Sesser, but thanks to Ned, we weren't bullied. That's the kind of leadership I like, and it takes experience to pull something like that off.
Nothing against Jason Ashmore, but Ned is the right choice.
