Dear Editor:

By Staff
Thank you so much for the nice article regarding my retirement.
There is only one small correction: Teague Cuddeback was elected mayor in 1988 and I came to work for her in December of 1990.
May I take this opportunity to publicly thank Mayors Cuddeback, Don Spencer, Ann Van Leeuwen, Chuck Yancura and Jan Wells for allowing me to work for and with them.
It has been a pleasure also to work with council members Fred Wills, Jim Sturdivant, Mike Price, Robin Wakefield, Kurt Keene, Len Bullington, Sally Warden, Greg Curtis, Don Spencer, Chris Watson, Marc Jacobson, Jim Reagan, Ray Stubblefield, Larry Vannoy, Bob Wagner, David Buschmann and Cynthia McCollum.
In 1990, there was no grass, trees or plants at City Hall.
There was a library housed in a storefront in Hughes Plaza; no fire station on the corner of Mill and Hughes Roads; no fire truck capable of reaching a second story; no city school system; and no Madison Chamber of Commerce or Madison Business Association, among other things.
All of the above named individuals have worked hard and been successful in making a tremendous difference in the city of Madison in the past 10 years with seeing that the aforementioned became not just a wish list, but a reality.
I count myself both lucky and blessed to have worked for and with all them, to have been a small part of the huge effort that has brought Madison from a small town of 15,000 residents in 1990 to the current estimated 33,000.
It has been amazing and wonderful to watch the business sector grow; to see many road and drainage projects completed; to know that Madison has one of the best recreation programs in the state, one of the best school systems, and excellent public safety departments.
My hometown of Cullman will always hold a place in my heart. And so will Madison and the people who have made it such a great place in which to live, work and/or retire.
Thanks again to all the people who have let me be a part of these past dozen remarkable years in a remarkable place.
Sincerely,
Charlotte Rumore
