Letter: Hurricane Irene/Baxter Estates

(Editor’s note: This letter was sent to Baxter Estates Deputy Mayor Charles Comer and Baxter Estates Mayor Fred Nicholson).

Charles, I want to thank you for your generous response to my wife’s plea for information related to the post-Irene blackout. With three boys under 5 and no hot water, too, we had our patience fully tested by Friday of that week. You arrived on our doorstep moments after the e-mail was sent, and offered us the use of your personal generator, as well as gave us the best update on the status of power in the village that we had heard all week. We deeply appreciate your personal commitment and service to our beautiful village. A sincere thank you, to a great neighbor and friend.

Fred, the image of you and your daughter walking from house to house, seeking to speak personally with every resident in the low-lying streets of our village, and warn of the potential for tidal surge was a caring example of your leadership. Thank you for all the work you do for our village.

James & Colleen Nawojchik
