Praise for a local official

To the editor:

I want to take this opportunity to say, "Thank you," to Jonesboro Mayor Pro Tempore Rick Yonce for the superb job he has done while standing in for our current mayor, who has been temporarily disabled due to medical problems.

Mayor Pro Tem Yonce has been faced with some difficult decisions, and he has

met them head on, without faltering. He has demonstrated wisdom in all of his actions and

has always kept the needs and wants of the citizens of Jonesboro at the forefront.

The citizens of Jonesboro should sleep well knowing that they have such great talent at the helm whenever the need arises. I feel honored to have been able to serve with him.

My warmest regards, and thanks for a job well done.
