TO THE EDITOR: Thank You
I would like to thank all of the people who came to the first “Coffee
with the Commissioner” at Smiths’ Coffee House in Arcanum on Saturday,
May 7th. There were a lot of good questions asked, and the
interaction between myself and the people was informative and
enjoyable. I would personally like to thank Chuck Zell who came
well prepared and asked a lot of great questions.
In the next couple of weeks I hope to announce where the next “Coffee
with the Commissioner” will be held. I enjoy these get-togethers
because they give me as a Commissioner a chance to hear what you, the
public, think on certain issues. I do believe that government
belongs to the people, not the elected. We do your bidding, and
in order to do that we must go to you, not demand that you come to
us. I hope to continue these gatherings so I can become a better
representative of you, the people who elected me.
Thanks again to those of you who took an active role in making the
interaction between Government and the Governed better in Darke
County. Let us set the example of how things should be between
the people and its Government, not how they are elsewhere. Thanks
to all, and hope to see you at the next “Coffee with the Commissioner”.
Commissioner Mike Stegall
