I had the honor of presenting a Council proclamation to Stephen Gallier (Army Ranger 1976-1980) the 7th District’s awardee at the Veteran’s Flag Day Ceremony this morning. It was an honor to meet Steve and he gave a stirring and inspirational speech about his faith in God and how the County helped him get on his feet.
I believe one group has been especially overlooked: the people responsible for the freedoms we enjoy – our military veterans.
On January 4th I introduced Bill 1-16 at the County Council’s first Legislative Session of the year. I consider the legislation to be of landmark importance, and wanted to be sure to share the reasoning behind the bill with the community.
