By Bob Truesdale, Mayor
Cedar Springs City Council
Long time no see. I mean, long time no say. At least one person on City Council seems to feel that I am elevating myself above other councilpersons, in attempting to keep you, the good people, apprised of the good things that are coming your way.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Many of you older people know me as
Bobby Truesdale, a little boy born into a single parent home on the other side of the railroad tracks in Cedar Springs. And, having a dad who ran off on me, for that so-called other woman, before I was born. I too, bore the stigma, like many children of our day. When we made Father’s day gifts in grade school, I soon learned I was a nobody. That followed me for years.
Then I came to realize that God wants all of us to be a humble somebody, and I take great joy in telling you that there are many great area somebodies that are stepping forward to build an all new Cedar Springs in 2014. Everyone has something to contribute, and if this is something you would like to help with, and have a good attitude, please join us now, and don’t forget to vote on November 5. This election can turn the tide, and you the people will have a say in what happens at City Hall.
Humbly, your Mayor
This and future writings from your Mayor’s desk does not reflect the feelings of all city councilors.
