Thoughtful words were plentiful and a heartfelt outpouring of good wishes for a speedy recovery were heard in council chambers Tuesday during the recognition and proclamation of the service given to the county by former Councilor Jim West.
“This is a proclamation that I read with a heavy heart,” Council Chairman Jim Hall said. “Jim couldn’t be here because he’s not feeling well,” he continued. He also said that West told him that he’d watch the meeting from home.
Hall read the proclamation and announced Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008, to be Jim West Day in Los Alamos County as a way of saying thank you “to Jim in honor of his thousands of hours of service to our community through the years. We applaud his contributions and want Jim to know that he leaves behind a seat at the Council dais that will be very difficult for us to fill in the coming days with anyone as passionate – and compassionate – as Jim. He will be sorely missed by all of us.” Hall said that he is proud to have served with West.
