Letter: ‘Surprised and dismayed’

I was very much surprised and dismayed  to learn Will Rossbach will not be a candidate for mayor. He has done a great job and it will certainly be a loss to our city. I can understand that business has to come first. He will certainly be missed. I watched him interact with the leadership of other cities and know he was well respected.
