Letter to the Editor

Congratulations on new position

To the Editor:

Congratulations to Mark Clanton (former Shelbyville public works director) on his new job. He is leaving a huge pair of shoes to fill. He has shown through love by the city, the taxpayers, the employees under him, you don't have to have a paper saying you have a college degree to be well liked, respected, and excel at your job.

It would be my hope that the city would look hard at local people to take Mark's job rather than go out of the county and try to find someone like Mark, whose life and dedication are for the city, and will probably be here after they retire.

The best to Mark and family. Hope to see him at Duck River where he is already a champion.
