Get behind Rosie

I am writing this letter in support of Rosie Steffens, former executive director for the Leelanau County Commission on Aging. As I know Rosie personally as well as professionally, I feel I can say without a doubt, that she is one the best, if not the best, executive directors in a six-county region that anyone could hope to hold that position. I say six-county region only because that is where we live, as she might even be the very best in the whole State of Michigan. She is a hard-working, honest, dedicated and loyal individual whose main concern is "the seniors." She even took time out of her own personal life to play Santa Claus for the seniors to make sure they too could feel the joy at Christmas.

I feel now is the time for us to stand up and be counted on her behalf. She dedicated over 26 years taking care of "her seniors." She personally visited them to sign them up for the services they needed. You do not find that happening with every Commission/Council on Aging.

Come on seniors, let's get behind Rosie. Thank you.

Carol Hynes
