We want to say that the people of Shelburne are truly blessed in Paul Goodrich, our Road Commissioner. His dedication for the past 35 years is unsurpassed. His uncompromising loyalty to this town can never be replaced.
A case in point: This past Saturday evening, after another deluge, we passed Paul on Cheese Factory Rd. assessing the flooded road for safety, and placing cones to warn drivers. The next morning we again passed him, this time with shovel in hand and a load of gravel to repair the road.
Over the years, we have seen this and similar scenes repeated over and over throughout the town and in every season. Paul is always there, and usually not in a supervisory role.
We think Paul deserves our gratitude for the work he does!
Kristen and Kevin Shea, Shelburne
