Letter: A tribute to Louise Theberge
Whether you feel as I do or whether you feel it is time for a change, there is no way that we can ever diminish the progress and sound government during Louise Theberge’s tenure.
Louise has never been a slap-on-the-back politician, or one to support the expeditious versus what her heart and her head believed was best for our county.
It is very fortunate that she came along at the right time, participating in decisions for our county for years to come. In recent years, we have been deciding what was really important to the future of Gloucester County and by stretching the dollar, watching employment costs, increasing taxes when there was no alternative, and simply being a steward of today’s needs in Gloucester County and projecting into the future whether it be our education system, our sheriff’s department, or building our information systems, parks and recreation, tourism, to name a few initiatives critical to our county and critical to the citizens of tomorrow.
Yes, Louise Theberge has served with the characteristic integrity, progressive thinking and devotion to her responsibilities, personifying a faithful servant of the people.
Louise, good luck and Godspeed.
