Paying Tribute

March 08, 2016

A Rough two weeks:
This past week the City once again flew our flags at half staff. While the current debate continues to grow over when a replacement should be announced for Justice Scaila, the Nation suffered another loss of a influential American. Nancy Reagan passed away this past week at her home in California. Our former First Lady was able to use her status and prestige to champion campaigns against drugs and is even given credit for the catch phrase “just say no”. Mrs Reagan also was very active in the fight against Alzheimer later in life. It is fitting that the city pay tribute to both Justice Antonin Scaila and Nancy Reagan to recognize their service and dedication to our country. The gap left with the loss of both of these great Americans will be hard to fill. Please remember to keep the families of Nancy Reagan and Justice Antonin Scaila in your prayers this week.

Remember Mulligan Stew:
Every year the Mantorville Restoration Association conducts a “Mulligan Stew” and auction. This year this event will be held at the Hubble House on this Thursday March 17 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm. This auction is a fund raiser for the MRA and an opportunity for some nice items to find a new life. Individuals or organizations interested in making a donation for the auction are encouraged to contact City Hall for more details. I hope to see many of our friends and neighbors at this event.

Just a reminder that there is an opportunity to serve on the EDA. Anyone interested in helping out is welcomed to apply for an appointment at City Hall. The EDA has been working very hard on some exciting projects that we are planning on presenting in the very near future, keep an eye out for some great news from the City regarding these projects.

Yours in service,

Chuck Bradford, Mayor - City of Mantorville
