Reynolds: Silverthorne should retain leaders like Mark Handschmidt (letter)

I really admire all the programs and great management evident in my city’s management. But the council must have been asleep at the wheel in letting Mark Handschmidt retire. What an asset! He has initiated many community programs for Silverthorne that have now spread throughout the County.

Having served as a volunteer on more than three police agencies over the last 20 year, Mark really stands out. He is seen as a stable and innovative leader by fellow law enforcement.

How many other key managers is the council going to let “retire”? People are assets. Fight to keep them.

If exit interviews were done by the council they may gain a better insight into the management of the city we have entrusted them with. You have a police advisory counsel. Use it.

Please do your homework.
