Letter: Dad was right

To the Editor:

For a long time, my family has been serving this community, whether it be my parents in education, my younger brother and I in parks and recreation, or my older brother and I in the armed services. Now my father has the honor of running to serve the community of Oswego as its village president. Today, I’m here to talk about him as a father and a man. My father made clear three principles I need to take to heart for a happy and successful life, work hard, treat your fellow person with respect, and go fishing. In my younger years there were many times where I didn’t follow these important guidelines, but as a young adult, I’ve really come to see he was right. When I do put forth my best efforts to any task and treat everyone with kindness on the way, it’s amazing what successes you can achieve. Oh yeah, and the fishing is just for fun. I may not be guiding the decisions of a multi-million-dollar company and leaving it to serve a community in education and in administration, but I know my path will make my father, Troy Parlier, proud.

Happy Birthday Dad.
