County Judge’s Report

March 13th, 2014 by

Let me start this week by saying that the death of Monticello Mayor Allen Maxwell is a tremendous loss to the city. The mayor and I may not have agreed on everything, but I respected him as a smart, tough leader who had the best interests of the city at heart. Mayor Maxwell worked hard to improve Monticello, whether it was overseeing the construction of the new fire station and rebuilding of the Sadie Johnson Community Center, developing a plan to replace worn-out water lines, recruiting business and industry, promoting the city or even negotiating a deal to get severe weather warning sirens and the Code Red system in place. He was a committed, dedicated public servant who had a vision for improving Monticello, both in the mayor’s office and previously as a state representative and staffer for former Congressman Jay Dickey. We will all feel his loss. His family is in our thoughts and prayers.

imageMy dear beautiful sister, you left us way too soon,
And so now in all our hearts
There is such an open wound,
If only you had not taken that dreadful walk,
And called upon just one of us to talk,
I will always wish I could have saved you that day
But I did not know,
That your heart had taken such a blow,
I wish I could have made you realize,
How important you were to all our lives,
But that was not in God’s plans,
You are now in His hands,
Time doesn’t heal all wounds
And our memories will never fade,
On that fateful day your mind was already made,
You were such a brave and fearless one,
But now you rest with the Father and His Son,
I guess what I’m trying to say,
Is that we will all see you again one day,
And now all your pain and suffering is gone,
For our Father in Heaven is still on His throne.
