To the editor of THE EAGLE:
This letter is written in response to the Aug. 22 Eagle article concerning the retirement of Selectman Ed Richards. Eddie has done so much for the town of Peru in all areas. He was the driving force in getting the Skyline Trail done, the new highway garage, and the new fire station. Eddie got countless grants for the town.
On a personal note, I know I will miss seeing Eddie at the town hall. He was always so pleasant to me. And I will never forget the thoughtfulness of Eddie and his wife, Chris, coming to my sister’s wake. I wish you the best, Eddie.
