Thank You, Mayor Cline & Councilor Jennifer Johnson
A Farewell Message from Mayor ClineDecember will mark my final city council meeting and the end of my term as Mayor of the City of Halsey. I began this journey in 1996 when I started attending city council meetings to learn what was going on in my adopted town. I was intrigued with how small city government worked and soon found myself on the planning committee. In the years that followed I served as a city councilor and council president, a member of the finance and budget committees, and more time on the planning committee. I’ve served as mayor for eight of the last ten years. Given all that, you might think I knew a great deal about the inner workings of Halsey. I don’t really. What I have, though, is a lengthy list of people who gave of their time and expertise to fill in the gaps of my knowledge and who all worked very hard to move the city forward each and every year. All the projects we worked on, from the city park in 1997 through the library project and Veteran’s Memorial just a few years ago, were made possible only through the generosity of many volunteers, careful planning by city staff, and support of city councils. I am so very grateful and humbled to have worked with so many wonderful, caring people.Good government is impossible without the involvement of ordinary people. I invite everyone to come to council meetings – it’s only a few hours on the second Tuesday evening each month – and ask questions or just listen to what’s being discussed. You won’t regret it, I promise. You may even find yourself Mayor 10 or 20 years from now!-Mayor Cline
