LETTER: We will do our best for Silt

Since it is not possible in a short newspaper article to thank or acknowledge properly all those who were involved in the recent election in Silt, I would like to do so in this forum.

To Dave Moore and Paul Taylor, I would like to say that nothing can diminish the work you have done over the last 10 and four years, respectively. Your contributions will have a lasting impact on Silt. I personally express my thanks and gratitude to both of you.

To Mark Anderson and T.J. Tucker, I would like to thank you for representing well those who support your positions. Your efforts to become involved in town government are commendable, and I hope both of you will continue to stay involved.

To Aron Diaz, Dylan Lewis and Bryan Fleming, I wish to say congratulations. I am looking forward to working with you for the next four years. All of you worked very hard during the election, and you each deserved to win.

To our staff, I would like to thank you for your constant hard work. Elections, I know, can also be difficult on you. I appreciate all your efforts.

Finally, I would like to thank most of all the town of Silt citizens. While other communities sometimes cancel their elections due to uncontested positions, our citizens participate. We have a name for it in Silt — democracy. The newly elected board members and I will do our best to live up to your expectations.

Rick Aluise

Silt mayor-elect
