King has done good work

I’m writing to say thank you to Mayor Dayton King. Since Mayor King has been in office, he has appointed and hired several people. Mayor King has hired some great people in all of the departments he supervises.

I am especially impressed with Mayor King’s dedication to being an equal-opportunity employer. Mayor King has appointed the first female career fire chief in New York state, Beth Whitman-Putnam, hired a Hispanic-American police officer, an African-American Department of Public Works worker and a Puerto Rican-American DPW worker. Recently, Mayor King also hired a female police officer.

There are a lot of people, businesses and organizations that say they are equal-opportunity employers, but Mayor King is one of the few whose actions follow his words.

Keep up the good work, Mayor King. I look forward to voting you into your second term this November.
