I think it should go without question that this "family member's" loss will be felt for some time to come in Crestwood.
We have lost not only a good and faithful servant of the people, but also a good friend to those who knew her well.
Now, who do we have in the wings that can step right in and take over her job without a hiccup ? The short answer is NO ONE !
A memo to the City Fathers, please remember the old Chinese proverb, "Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it." Now what do we do ?
I am not going to engage in reasons why she left, because we don't know the reasons, but I will say if this "bleeding" is fixable, we beat do it, and NOW !
One thing is for sure, she didn't leave for a higher salary (she took a pay cut to remain,) so it has to be another reason, so whatever that is, FIX IT before it's too late.
