To the editor:

It is with great anticipation and high expectations for the future of Madison, Hanover, and Jefferson County that I am a member of ENVISION Jefferson County.

ENVISION Jefferson County members are from a broad cross section of people representing a wide range of ages. They come from all walks of life in our county and have diverse interests with one thing in common and that is seeing us move forward with a clear, concise, and widely accepted strategic plan.

It is easy to point to our list of community assets and the many successes we've enjoyed over the years, but we can't just rest on our laurels. I have always believed the pride, work ethic, and character of the people who live here make this a special place. There is every reason to believe we have a bright future ahead for Madison, Hanover, and all of Jefferson County but a clear plan for the opportunities ahead can only be identified and formulated with input from the citizens of all areas and interests in Jefferson County. I know there are many of you who will read this letter and share my concerns and interest in making all of Jefferson County the best place to live, work, and raise a family. If you feel as I do and want to express your thoughts and ideas about our future then ENVISION Jefferson County wants to hear from you. You will have the opportunity to be heard in "community conversations" later this month. Don't miss this chance to be a voice for our future!
