You re making yourself available to an awful lot of people during the course of a he finds the mayor exchanges such As the one this past week a rewarding experience for himself and beneficial to the Community. In three Rivers for instance he saw How another City comparable to Hillsdale handles problems and situations similar to Hies seen Here. A a it a certainly one of the highlights of the year As a mayor. Its an Honor to represent your Community in another Community. A another Honor he has As mayor is the Power to conduct marriages.

We Hope to pull off a magnificent Celebration. A people in the county have been real Good. I done to think there a any animosity toward the City of Hillsdale partially because we participate in their events. Celebrate America is a Good Opportunity for this cooperation to work what lies ahead for mayor Hine a actually in a in my last term As mayor again a he noted. Hillsdale mayors Are limited to two consecutive terms before they have to leave office for at least a term.
