By the time you read this Mayor’s Message I will have resigned as your Mayor. During 2019 I had a series of health issues that I dealt with and looking ahead it doesn’t appear that is going to change. Because of that, I need to take a step back and do what is best for my wife and myself. It has been an honor to serve as your Mayor for the last ten years. It was an opportunity that I never imagined for myself and I am appreciative of the faith so many of you had in me. I know that the right person will step up and take over the reins of leadership and move Troy into the future. I want to thank all my Department heads for teaching me what I needed to know to do this job. It has been a pleasure to work with all the Alderman that have served during my tenure, and I wish the current Board of Alderman success as they continue to guide the City.
Finally, I want to thank God for putting me in this position and I hope that I fulfilled his plan for me while I was here. I know that he has more for me to do and will reveal that to me when he knows I am ready. I wish you all the best and God bless you all.
