Thank you, David Miller, for seven great years
As I noted a while back, and mentioned earlier today, our new mayor begins his term tomorrow. Today is the last day that David Miller, the man that we’ve been lucky enough to call our mayor since December of 2003, will hold the office.
I hope you’ll join me in thanking the mayor for seven years of faithful and distinguished service. I know he had his critics, but I think he did a fine job at the helm of the city. His service reflected a passion and dedication to so many of things that make Toronto a terrific place to live and work, and for that we owe him a debt of gratitude.
If you’re worried that you might have a hard time letting go during the early days of Ford, then I recommend picking up a copy of Miller’s book. I grabbed my copy yesterday, although I’m afraid I haven’t cracked it yet. There’s at least one book ahead of it in the “books about working to make this the best city it can be” queue, but I hope to tear through them both as soon as I can.
Speaking of which, Dave Meslin happened to mention earlier tonight that there are plenty of “great resources and reports” on Miller’s mayoral web page. “Download now,” Mez says, “before they’re deleted.”
