In praise of city engineer Mark Mathon          Send a link to a friend

Dear LDN:

I wanted to take this opportunity to praise the work of city engineer Mark Mathon. The recently completed downtown street project is just another example of the positive momentum Lincoln is now generating.

My guess is that in a job like Mark's, he either gets lots of complaints or is simply ignored. I do not want to be a resident who does either one, but simply says thank you for sharing your energy, your knowledge and your expertise among us here in Logan County.

Mark is a young man who possesses a great education, is a hard worker and loves to see our city improve. I only want to say, "Nice job and keep up the good work!"

Jeff Mayfield
