Departing Legislators Thanked and Recognized

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

This was the final meeting for three Legislators who are departing the Legislature—Pamela Mackesey, leaving after eight years; Pat Pryor after four; and Frank Proto, the Legislature’s most senior member, after 29 years of service.  All thanked their colleagues and staff and said that serving had been an honor and a privilege.  Legislator Proto, who began service when the late Harris Dates was chair, recounted the changes he’d seen over the years—in part, describing his long-time service as Chair of the Health and Human Services Committee as “a labor of love.” 

Again and again, by their colleagues, the three departing members were thanked for their hard work, commitment to service, and what they had added to the culture of the Legislature.  County Administrator Joe Mareane expressed his deep appreciation to them all.  Legislators also thanked outgoing Chair Robertson for her service as chair for all four years.  Robertson has indicated she will not seek the Chair’s position next year.
