Congratulations are in order for our fire chief, Jimmy Chew. 

I had the privilege of working with Jimmy during my time on the city council and have known him most of my life. 

He has served our city well. We are all blessed to have the employees we have. Our quality of life here is no accident. 

I also want to thank his wife for her many years of service. Thank you Jimmy and Betty.

While I am passing out kudos, thanks to all that are serving on the Event Center Committee. Thank you Scot Jackson for remembering way in the past when we put together a similar study. It would have been paid for long ago. Way cheaper. 

I am proud Stephenville is my home.
