I said goodbye to a friend and colleague last night. It was unexpected but understood.
I enjoyed working with Bruce on the City Council, I especially enjoyed our heated debates over the issues. Bruce and I may not have seen eye to eye on all issues, but I respected him for his ideas, and he in turn showed me the same respect.
I wish him all the luck in his future endeavors, and I look forward to him visiting our meetings from time to time and voicing his concerns at the podium.
