To the editor:
Hats off to Mayor Mike Amyx! He has done a great job the past year. He is a real gentleman who believes Lawrence is a great place to live.
I have known Mike for a number of years. When I go to his barber shop, we talk about things that have taken place in Lawrence and what should be done to make Lawrence a better place for a new business to make its home. We talk about getting the South Lawrence Trafficway finished, street repair, the library expansion, the growth of new jobs and many other topics.
He is the first mayor to be elected for three terms. That should tell Lawrence that he has been one of the best mayors to have taken on the very demanding job.
Sue Hack will have big shoes to fill, but I am sure she also will do a great job.
Again, hats off to you Mike.
