Thank you, Charlie!

While I don’t know Mayor Cornfield personally, I have met him on a few occasions and watched him in “mayoral” action on our local cable TV coverage of City Council meetings.

These have formed, in me,  the impression of a man who is comfortable in his own skin and who embraces life, with it’s day to day challenges,  of both the unexpected and the predictable varieties. He seems a man who gives his best effort and takes his responsibilities seriously.

Charlie enjoys the community he represents with camaraderie and zest, continually volunteering his services for local charitable fundraisers and sharing his good humor and relaxed demeanor at community events.  A true man of the people. He oversaw several positive community improvements, such as the highly successful Spirit Square transformation, and the seaside highway upgrade between Rockland and Hilchey.  Public service is often a thankless job, which by its civic nature, invites strong opinion from the people served.

Most recently, in his letter to the community, he paid tribute to the axiom that behind every good man there is a good woman by publicly honoring his wife for her support and patience. Thank you both, for your years of community service.  A job well done!
