This year I became a town councillor and I understand why he was never home, and I thank my husband Steve for being so patient. I understand when you take this job how important it is to do a good job. Some days I feel like I am NOT doing enough. I get SO frustrated because I want to do so much but things do not work like that. You have no idea. Today, I have become my father’s daughter and never realized it.
Some day I must make peace with all of this. I know I told my father in anger that he loved the town of Cowansville more — and today I understand. I had NO idea, and today I do. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. Like my Dad I love my town and really, finally, we do have things in common— both our veins run deep in the communities we love.
Steve Yaver—— People think it’s a part time gig, when that’s the furthest from the truth. Meetings way beyond Council, numerous contacts from constituents that need to be answered, and most importantly, a desire to do what’s best for the town and the most underrepresented people in the community. I am so proud of you and keep doing what you are doing.
