    Linda was one of the most generous people I know.She gave of herself, her time, her money and her friendship. Always with a smiling face, she could light up a room when she walked in. I feel very fortunate to have known her for the last 17 years and hope her positive influence will make me a better person. Linda, you will be missed by all who knew you and “May you rest in Peace”.

    Linda was an inspiration to us all. I worked with her at General Telephone and then have followed her legacy for years with her work in the DAV. The world is sadder without her, but heaven is rejoicing and she is back with her father God and Mike.

    It’s interesting how you state in your prifloe that you were not involved in the new high school boundary decision making process however your home resides within the new high school’s boundaries. I might add that your home (based on public information) is much further than mine and I am walking distance to the new school but yet my children cannot attend it due to the way the boundaries were set. It was a travesty the way the entire boundary issue was handled and completely reeks of favoritism by Superintendent Smith. It’s not a big secret that the Superintendent always favored one boundary scenario and now I can only wonder if it was to reward those that worked on passing his bond measure other pet projects. Just to let you know, I also voted for approval of the bond measure and that is what infuriates me even more. To have been fooled into thinking that this measure would benefit the entire community after the new high school was built. In actuality this was not the case and only a select few benefited. I am not pointing any fingers but I would like to remind you that now that you have been elected to the City Council you are here to serve the ENTIRE community. This is something that Superintendent Smith and the former school board completely lost sight of back when they decided on the new high school boundaries. Thanks for listening.
