Well, the time has officially come. I am onto my next chapter.

I want to take this time to thank all the residents that I have met over the last 40 years. Coming here every day has always been interesting, and I can say that working in the industry, in general, has been an adventure.  So, my moving on is just creating space for someone else to have a turn.

To the Board of Commissioners, thank you. Thank you for making me feel important and appreciated. It’s been a pleasure getting to know all of you, witnessing the progress in Wellesley Housing over these past 40 years. I would like to encourage you all to continue to support public housing, the residents, and the staff. We have a great community here in Wellesley and that is something that should always be remembered.

To all the wonderful people whom I have had the opportunity to work with over the past almost 40 years – Thank You. The times shared, friendships forged and the incredible achievements which we have enjoyed have been an extraordinary part of my life. I am very proud of what we have achieved, and they have been times I will never forget. You really did make work a happier place to be. I wish you all good fortune in your careers

Everything has a beginning and an end. The timing to end this chapter seems about as right as it could be. I wish all of you every success for the future.

Stay safe and maintain the enthusiasm!

Thank you all.
