To the editor:

Thank you to Grady Chastain, Charles Lockwood and to Ed McMillian for your tireless and professional service on the Brownwood City Council. You are greatly appreciated by so many for the sacrifices that you have endured to help make Brownwood a better community

There are many hard decisions that have to be made in serving in such an important capacity, and you have made those tough decisions based solely upon your love and dedication to the great people of Brownwood. As Brownwood continues to grow, and as more good people learn about the benefits of living in our community and move here to be our friends and neighbors, there will be even more tough decisions. I hope that those following you will continue to make the tough, but correct, decisions for our city. Brownwood is a great community because we have great people like you. Thanks again.
