Fifteen years ago I helped run a unified campaign for the Sunnyside City Council with three other men I had just met. Through that experience two of those men, Don Vlieger and Mike Farmer, became what I hope will be lifelong friends.
At this past Monday's meeting, Mayor Farmer ended his latest stint of serving Sunnyside. Over the last two decades, Mike has shared his unique sense of wisdom, common sense and integrity with us as a concerned citizen, council member and as mayor.
Mike's contributions will benefit Sunnyside for years to come.
To the thousands of our neighbors who have the privilege of knowing or working with Mike, please take the time to thank him for a job well done.
