I want to extend my best wishes to everyone who is celebrating a holiday over the next few days. It has done my heart good to hear so many stories about family and friends finding alternative means of being together for all kinds of celebrations. It shows how determined people are to keep up their spirits, and to maintain as much normalcy as they can, even in these very troubled times.
It is my sincerest hope that we will look back on this holiday period as the time when we turned the corner on the pandemic, and that we may soon begin to see signs of recovery for our community, our state, our nation and the world.
Wishing you all joy and good health during this holiday season,
