Very interested in professional city leadership

Published: Saturday, July 6, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

In a July 2 letter to the editor about city government, Michael Svach quoted me as saying, “Too much professionalism was not a good thing because it would take the heart and soul out of Dixon government.” These are not my words, nor my sentiment.

I can only surmise that Mr. Svach misheard, or misunderstood, a discussion we were having. I invite Mr. Svach to again attend one of our governmental task force meetings. 

I believe he will find that although we haven’t yet finalized a recommendation to the city, we are all very interested in seeing some professional leadership put in place.
