You did a great job representing your people. As was clear from the vote, I guess no one could have succeeded. I just wanted to say that they are lucky to have you represent them.

Karen:

I want you to know that we have no hard feelings or animosity toward you or any of the good folks at NashboroVillage as a result of our spirited debate over the undeveloped parcels over the past year. We understand you were doing what you felt was in the best interests of your constituents and we certainly cannot fault you for that. Hopefully you also understand we were only defending our company’s business interests. It is a shame we were not able to reach an agreement that would have benefitted both sides.

As a personal note, you made me work harder than I have on any zoning issue in nearly 20 years of doing this kind of work. 

I hope we will have the chance to work together on issues in the future. You are thorough and you do your homework and I appreciate those qualities very much.
