To the editor:
I would like to thank the Crestwood Board of Aldermen for their help in assisting me with a zoning situation recently.
I had an issue that required a vote of all aldermen. I communicated with them prior to the meeting to ensure they understood the issue and my position.
A few of them took the time to talk to me personally. All of them engaged in a very productive discussion at the Board of Aldermen meeting, and I feel gave honest and sincere consideration to the matter at hand.
Ward 3 (my ward) Alderman Jerry Miguel had reviewed the affected area and brought pictures to the meeting that were invaluable in the discussion.
Ward 3 Alderman Grant Mabie went above and beyond in helping me resolve this situation.
Alderman Mabie spent a significant amount of time doing research on the issue and communicating with me and other parties affected.
His knowledge of the workings of the city government and his legal background were invaluable.
Thank you to all of our aldermen, who have to diligently balance their residents’ wishes/rights and moving the city forward.
