"Moving on is simple.

It’s what we leave behind that’s hard.”

          I am writing these words with heartfelt gratitude to the citizens of Jasper and to all city staff members. Sunday, January 6, 2019 will be my last day in office as Mayor of Jasper. The following was part of my announcement on December 13, 2018 that I have accepted a senior staff position with United States Senator Mike Braun:

          “It has been the highest honor to have served as your mayor for the last seven years. Waking up each morning knowing that I represented all the good this city offers has been an extraordinary experience. Along the way I’ve met many new friends, both here in Jasper and around the State of Indiana. Building upon these same friendships will be part of my work for Senator Braun.

          A very talented City staff has been engaged in every step of the projects underway and planned in the City. This will not change. Let me assure you that, while I’ve played a role in what is happening in Jasper, this dynamic team deserves credit for all our accomplishments. We will continue to build upon the collaboration we have established in our region as a leading Indiana city and a city of leaders. Our future is in good hands.

          My wife, Deena, and I offer our deepest gratitude for all the kindness and trust bestowed upon us over the years. Likewise, we are grateful for the opportunity to assist Senator Braun as he begins his new journey.”

May God bless our next mayor, Dean Vonderheide, and the City of Jasper!
