Transitions

Dear Supporters,

Transitions in life are always difficult given the necessary changes that need to be made in order to adjust to the new realities. I am certainly going through a transition here at Hazelton and I know that the residents of District 7 are certainly going through a transition with a new District 7 City Councilor.
