Today, I will rejoice.
Utmost respect to the entire IIBEC Team.
Mr. Brian Gardner, a warrior, has contributed many years to the discipline, and this particular objective.
Here, I will thank him from the bottom of my heart, for a tireless spirit, and in service to others. First hand, know the anguish, pressure, disappointment, and heartbreak he's endured. Brian has "Determination", and an uncommon will to achieve.
Mr. Scott Hinesley, a true Professional in every way. I admire Scott as a wonderful family man, and is glorious in his pursuit of all things noble. If Scott tells you he knows a three legged raccoon that can tap dance, play a tambourine, and whistle "Dixie", believe it.
That's for you WH, my dear, and Honorable friend. All Praise, and Glory to "Brother Jake" for his selfless contributions in service to his country. 'Never Forget". AAOOAAHH!
Mr. Tom Gernetzke, Past President of RCI, hard working, caring, and has the full respect of our entire industry. A finer person, you will not meet. A great inspiration to me personally.
Each of them known to me, and all "Honorable" Men. I stake my reputation of 45 years on each one. I'd gladly confess to a homicide for any one of them.
They stood by me, when few would. At times, can be a bit too "energetic" for my own good.
I've spent ten years writing about "Public Roofing Oversight", and trying desperately to get through to anyone who would listen.
My Honorable Colleagues have freed me from great burden.
Every School Board Member in North America should thank them for rescuing school maintenance budgets from "Purchasing Cooperatives".
Roofing is the costliest item in public maintenance.
Instead of "Exclusionary Practices" promoted by Purchasing Cooperatives, will follow a fair, competitive, open, and inclusive, bidding process. Can you hear me fellow taxpayers?
Thank you to Cobb County Commission for listening, and doing the right thing.
The fair, reasonable, rational, and Honorable thing.
By doing this, suspect taxpayers will be saving approximately 40%-50% on Roofing, and Roofing Services.
You will also retain approximately 70% of your local tax dollar since most manufacturers are locally distributed, represented, and installed.
