To The Editor:

You are right in your editorial a couple of weeks ago, we have reached the end of a great political career.

John Griesheimer will be retiring officially at the end of the week (as presiding commissioner).

It has been my privilege to know and work with John politically, professionally, and personally over the past 35 years. In our politically charged atmosphere I know not everyone will agree with me, but John has done our area a tremendous amount of good in that time.

Thanks for your time, John, and enjoy your retirement.
