This is a great transition for me, and I’m excited about the possibilities, the new level of flexibility in my time, and moving on to new challenges and opportunities, both professionally and personally.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, the community of Redwood City. When I started here 12 years ago, I immediately felt a rare and strong sense of community, and everyone in the City with whom I’ve had contact has reinforced that feeling. In fact, as someone who doesn’t live here, I’ve often said that it feels like I’ve adopted this community; but in reality it was you who adopted me, made me part of your community, and gave me the opportunity to thrive during my time here.
It has been my pleasure to be a member of this community and to have done my small part in serving you on behalf of Redwood City. I hope that I’ve had some role in helping you to learn about, understand, and become engaged with the many issues and activities taking place in the great community of Redwood City.
I wish you all the best, and a fond farewell.
