Letter: Praise for the ‘Pearl of the Chesapeake’
I am writing in reference to the Gazette-Journal article regarding the pipeline work begin done by TA Sheets Mechanical Contractor of Norfolk. I am no engineer, so I can’t comment on the mechanics of the pipeline. I do, however, have excellent eyesight, and want to compliment the crew on the workmanlike manner in which they have left their worksites at the end of each day. I have never seen one piece of litter—no cans, paper cups, fast food wrappers, etc.—no debris of any kind—ever.
I also would like to compliment the local staff of the U.S. Census Bureau, with whom I had the pleasure of working in May and June. While we had some glitches, my supervisors Wendi Shields and Paulette Burrell were always available and competently resolved any problem I encountered. As a "come here," I went down highways and byways that I might have otherwise not explored, and met some very nice people I might not have had the pleasure of knowing, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of the residents I interviewed for the kindness and courtesy they extended to me during this important process.
I am becoming more convinced every day—this is truly the "Pearl of the Chesapeake."
