Friday night was the annual City Council - Commissioners dinner. It is the one time each year that the council and city staff get to thank the various commissioners for their service. These are unpaid positions and can take a sizable amount of time and effort when done properly. One commissioner who has done it right is Leslie McQuaide on the Beautification commission--for 14 years. Among other accomplishments, she has been the driving force behind the community garden that open back in 2013.
Leslie has decided to step down and those will be big gardening shoes to fill. Kudos to Leslie for being a positive force in B'game for so long! Here is Mayor Ricardo Ortiz presenting a certificate of appreciation to her.
