To the Editor:

I have had the opportunity to work alongside Richard Walsh for three years, and consider myself fortunate to call him a colleague and a friend.

Rich has served admirably as a Keizer city councilor for the past 10 years.  His dedication and impact on the area are far-reaching and will be visible for years, most notably with the development of Keizer Rapids Park.

The citizens of Keizer owe a huge thank you to Rich for giving so much of himself for the benefit of the community.
