Montgomery Village Board members and department heads wore sweater vests during the board’s meeting Monday evening, Feb. 11, as a show of support for their board colleague, Stan Bond.
Bond, who often wore sweater vests to board and other village meetings over the years, has missed several recent meetings due to illness.
Village President Matt Brolley, attired in a black sweater vest, expressed regret that Bond was not able to attend Monday’s board meeting.
“You are all looking very dashing tonight,” Brolley told the similarly attired board members and department heads as he called the meeting to order.
Later, Brolley explained he and other village officials would like Bond to know they’ve missed him and are thinking of him and his family.
