RIVERVIEW – Volunteer Gerald Masley was honored Dec. 5 by Mayor Andrew Swift and the City Council for his nearly three years with the Economic Development Corporation and the Brownfield Redevelopment Authority.
Family commitments and many other city committee responsibilities influenced his decision to resign.
“He wants to change his priorities a little bit, I think in a good way,” Swift said.
Swift said Masley was on the committee for the Veterans Memorial, into which he invested a lot of time and work.
“We just want to thank you for your service and what you have done,” Swift told Masley at the meeting.
Masley said it has been a pleasure working with the many people and committees on which he has served.
“I just hope that a lot of young people in the city that are listening and watching this get out and help to support the city,” Masley said, “and work with the rest of the people in the city to keep it running and keep it going, and keep it smiling.”
