This letter is a thank you to Karen Schmidt. As alderman for Ward 6, Karen was a mover and shaker; responsive to our residents, involved in our neighborhoods and active in our diverse community. Karen helped us repair our sidewalks, pave our streets and came together with us in our community gardens. The book bike is a fixture in our community.
Karen advised us on who to contact on city staff with questions and urged us to serve on city boards and commissions. She was a role model to us on becoming involved to make things better for all. Whether it is a neighborhood clean-up day, a farmers market or a meeting of an individual neighborhood association, Karen was here.
Thanks again, Karen.
Cindy Arnold, Bloomington
