Tv does it, magazines do it and news sources honor it. so why not have our own person of the year. As always there are many deserving people in the City of Brookfield. This choice is on a larger scale because of the downturn of the economy, the housing crisis and the need to hold the fiscal line.
This person, a resident of the City of Brookfield, did all that it takes to keep our fair city in a strong fiscal position without giving up the quality of services to the citizens.
His efforts are mostly without publicity and fanfare that causes the drums to roll out . But what he has done is music to our ears.
He has kept us on an even path to future success and has shown the leadership necessary to get the very best out of the people who work for him.
His courage on the issues of education and city government are seldom seen in a Mayor.
For the City of Brookfield Person of the Year may I present to you the Mayor of the City of Brookfield, STEVE PONTO.
Thank you for your services, MAYOR STEVE PONTO
