On the edge of rebuilding

Mayor Paul Finley, Kim Lindsey and Taylor Edge

A party was thrown in honor of Taylor Edge, Mayor Paul Finley’s executive assistant, who officially resigned Friday, May 20.

Numerous colleagues came to show their support for Edge.

“First, he’s a friend and a trusted ear that I respect from an opinion standpoint,” Finley said. “The city will miss his attention to detail and his ability to take complex problems, break them down, come up with a solution and, in turn, implement whatever we come up with.”

Edge said he will miss being part of a team that has such a positive impact on Madison.

Finley said Edge’s work ethic is one you would hope for and expect in the mayor’s office. Finley said Edge is customer-focused and action-oriented.

“He wants to touch it once, do it right and make sure he’s constantly focused on results that are supportive of a mission statement of improving quality of life for our residents,” Finley explained. “And he has done a fabulous job at doing that.”

Edge said it has been a pleasure to work alongside his coworkers.

“I can’t stress enough that this whole city is one big team and one big family,” Edge said. “And they’re going to continue to do great things.”

At the party, Edge was given a hard hat on behalf of the building department, a plaque, a key to the city and a collage of photos from his time serving as the mayor’s executive assistant.

Now, Edge will focus on rebuilding his businesses, Tennessee Valley Marine and Rescue ONE Connector Boats. To learn more about his businesses, visit their websites at www.tvmarine.com and www.rescueone.com.

To the individual who fills his position, Edge offered this advice: “Always make decisions based on what you think is right. That’s what it’s always been. It’s not about what will make you popular or how you can help out a buddy or help the mayor get re-elected. It’s about making decisions every day that you feel are in the best interest of the city.”

Finley has interviewed several candidates for the position, and he is hoping to announce Edge’s replacement by the end of next week.
