Mayor Hansen Bows Out

Today marks the final day as mayor and a city council member for Rick Hansen.

Mr. Hansen has served our community for 14 years on the council. He served 8 years in the 1980’s and another 6 starting in 2008. The last two years as mayor.

The council will miss Mr. Hansen’s business expertise and financial knowledge. He was able to communicate his thoughts clearly and with respect.

He was the target of political attacks, but always handled them with the grace and tact you expect of a leader.

Mr. Hansen deserves much credit for helping to turn this city around. Reducing our city debt, returning the police traffic unit, instituting term limits, and bringing a sense of respect back to the position of mayor.

Good luck in your future endeavors Mr. Hansen and thank you .
