Thank you, Mayor, commissioners, city staff and citizens of Winter Park. 

On this September afternoon, we gather to listen and address the needs of the people of the City. So let us focus solely on the task at hand.

Carl Sagan wrote “We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers, our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good.”

Today - may we use only our best skills and judgment.

May we keep ourselves impartial and neutral, as we consider the merits and pitfalls of each matter that is placed before us.

May we lean forward, keeping in mind the welfare of all the city citizens, embracing reason and free inquiry, working harmoniously together to transform our city through love and to accomplish good works with compassion and consideration for all.                          

Thank you.
