Justin Clary’s Going Away Party
There were a few tears shed at former Ridgefield City Manager Justin Clary’s going away party last night because so many people will miss him. All of us who have worked with Justin have admired his positive attitude and the things he accomplished for our city in his eight years here.
Justin and Kerry and their two daughters plan to stay in Ridgefield until school ends and their house sells, and then they will move to Bellingham to work in the offices of Maul, Foster, Alongi. Until then Justin will work in MFA’s Vancouver office.
In a short speech Justin credited his successes in Ridgefield to the “tireless efforts of our dedicated City staff and council. Ridgefield is a success story in the making and I look forward to continuing to watch its many accomplishments to come.”
He quoted Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
And that’s what Ridgefield is all about!
