Tomorrow, the Fort Lauderdale City Commission will convey some important recognitions on some worthy citizens. They will choose the Citizen of the Year, the Distinguished Citizen, Exemplary Former Employee, and the Honored Founder.
These are the winners from last year …
The recipients are chosen from nominations sent in from the citizenry, and a Board (made up of former Mayors and a few other leading citizens) pick the winners.
This year, a nomination for the Distinguished Citizen came in for John Rodstrom – from his wife – the famous Charlotte Rodstrom!
He didn’t win.
Personally, I think John deserves some sort of recognition from us. He served the public (albeit being well paid) for something like 30 years.
Hell, I’ll go as far as saying that it might be time to recognize Jim Naugle for his years of service to the City ( at least his early years).
What do you think?
