Christie Wood (re: "It's Official! Bloem won't run again"): I have been a City employee for 23 years. We have been fortunate to have some good mayors and dedicated council people. Mayor Bloem is deeply respected and admired by the employees. She is down to earth, and sophisticated at the same time. She loves her community, and has certainly devoted herself to her words of "creating a sense of place". If she decides not to run for another term she will be sorely missed, but she has done her part and she deserves other opportunities. Public service is fulfilling, interesting, and mostly joyful but it also takes a toll. I hope she knows how much she is appreciated and that she has many great, new endeavors ahead.
Question: What will be Mayor Bloem's legacy?
