Thanks for trust, support, St. Charles

To the residents of St. Charles, I have been humbled by your trust and faith in my ability to serve as your next mayor. I have been overwhelmed by the kindness you have shown me through your messages of congratulations and goodwill.

I want to personally thank John Rabchuk, Col. Jake Wyatt, and Jotham Stein for conducting a dignified campaign. I know they will continue to serve our city.

Rest assured, the days and weeks ahead will be devoted to working with Brian Townsend, the city staff and our mayor, Don DeWitte, to perform a smooth transition.

We live in a wonderful community; those who have worked in and managed our town all these years have laid a wonderful foundation. During the campaign, your voices told me you want us to seek new opportunities for renewal while maintaining our proud heritage and small-town charm. You also want to share your town with visitors who will come to enjoy a variety of choices provided by talented local entrepreneurs and cultural leaders.

I believe the men and women who represent you, our incumbent and newly elected city council members, will serve you well. They will interact with you, listen to you, discuss and debate issues thoroughly and wisely, and work with me to provide you with a local government that is representative of the varied desires of our residents.

Our staff will continue to respond to your needs with courtesy and efficiency. All of us are here to serve you. You should accept nothing less.

As I have said many times throughout the campaign, we always will ask, "Can we do better?"

I am the eternal optimist. I hope you will be optimistic as well. With your support, your elected officials and staff will enhance our great city.

Raymond P. Rogina

St. Charles
