Congratulations to First Citizen Florence Wager!
I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this year’s First Citizen award than Florence Wager, and it was a pleasure to be part of the large entourage promoting her selection. Flossie’s tireless support of Parks and Recreation, her unparalleled advocacy for community livability, and her generous spirit and humor have made a profound difference in this place we call home. I’ve known Flossie for nearly a decade and have had the pleasure of spending a lot of personal time with her – she has influenced me through her example and by her wisdom. I’ve learned so much from her — not just about how to preserve and protect our natural environment, but also how to listen, collaborate and advocate. Flossie, you’re indeed an inspiration to us all — thank you for your hard work and boundless energy.
