LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Honoring Bud Mendenhall was right thing to do

Rep. Carbaugh,

With the Franklin School Park Pavilion opening behind us and all the speeches about all the hard work everyone did to get the Franklin School Park finished, it’s time to really say thank you for making the day very special for Bud Mendenhall. Thank you doesn’t seem big enough for what the award means to Bud Mendenhall. Bud Mendenhall is still on cloud nine and can’t believe that the State of Indiana and, in particular you, a State Representative, had taken the time and made a Superman effort to recognize him as a very special person in the State of Indiana.

I would like to thank you for your efforts and commitment to doing the right thing for the right reason.

The award that Mr. Mendenhall received was just that, the right thing to do for such a respected neighborhood advocate for so many years.

Thank you !

— John Modezjewski, Fort Wayne
