I had the pleasure of working with Dave on a community health-related event over the summer. Dave "gets it" that what our city can provide via our Parks & Rec. department directly impacts community health. I wish him well, and know that his stewardship of that department will result in continued emphasis on physical and mental health (and fun!)

Dave was truly one of the BEST Director of our Great City. As a commissioner for 9 years, it was a pleasue being part of his world.
The City Council meeting and his retirement party were heartwarming.

Good luck Dave and enjoy your semi-retirment.

Age at retirement? Number of years of service? Salary? Did he train up his replacement? Will he be hired back to double dip because he's so valuable?

Oh that's right, the public has no right to know any of the details of a civil servant choosing to retire. Otherwise, who cares if the guy is retiring.

All the rats are jumping ship, locking in their fat pensions before the public demands they be changed.

My dictionary does not contain the word "errogant." Please define. Better yet, learn to spell and express yourself effectively before impugning the character of others.

impugn |imˈpyo͞on|
verb [ with obj. ]
dispute the truth, validity, or honesty of (a statement or motive); call into question: the father does not impugn her capacity as a good mother, Dave M errogantly impugns the character of all public servants.
