As you prepare to celebrate a momentous birthday, I wanted to let you know some of the reasons that we celebrate you. It is a pleasure to know someone with your energy, enthusiasm, and intelligence who is so willing to share these talents with the community.
We also want to thank you for your innovative T.A.P.S. initiative. Each day we can depend on the familiar notes, just as we have always been able to depend on your positive dynamic in our city. Each note is a constant reminder of the service you and others have given to our country. What a gift you have given he community!
You are admired the world over, but nowhere more than here in the city of Valparaiso. All the best to you, Bill Wellman, as you launch your next big idea.
Mayor of the City of Valparaiso
