I would like to give a big thank you to Mayor Jack Powell who graciously selected me to receive the 2019 Mayor's Community Service at the recent VCDC banquet. At the banquet we heard a great deal about a lot of good things happening in Vermillion and all the progress that has been made in our community over the years – it was very uplifting to be reminded about all of it.
A lot of that progress is the result of many things and countless people and one of those people is Jack Powell and his leadership. Jack has provided exceptional leadership both as member of the City Council from the Northwest Ward and even more so as our mayor. I feel Jack has been one of the most effective leaders we have in our community and we are indebted to his service.
Thank you Jack for the award and for all you have done for Vermillion – it is deeply appreciated. To borrow from a popular phrase – If you lucky enough to live in Vermillion, you are lucky enough!
