Dear Chichester Voters,
With a heavy heart, I
must tell you we have lost one of our most experienced, respected,
and loved selectman, Jeff Jordan.
Jeff had been a selectman
almost as long as I have lived in Chichester. I am now finishing up
my first full term as Selectman and I canít tell you how much I have
learned from Jeff in this short time. Anyone who has served
with Jeff knows he didnít say much, but when he did it was both
thoughtful and direct.
As a citizen I didnít
always agree with Jeff and after one exchange he said, ďCome
sit on this side of the table and you will see it isnít so easy.Ē
I took this to heart and ran for selectman. He was right.
It isnít easy but it is very rewarding.
One thing that has made
my term, as selectman so positive is that Jeff permeated a sense of
calm even when we had contentious public comments. Never did Jeff
raise his voice or get mad. He respected all our citizens and that
is a lesson I have taken to heart.
Another reason my
experience has been so positive is that Jeff didnít let ego come
before the welfare of the town. I have had many disagreements with
Jeff and even if he personally didnít agree with a position, if it
was in the best interest of the town, he would change his vote.
I canít tell you how much I respected this. Many nights after a
meeting Jeff would say he loves serving this town and I know that my
experience with him will make me a better person as well as a better
I will miss Jeff very
much, and his legacy will live on with all the experience he has
given to me and to the all the citizens he has known. God couldnít
ask for a better shepherd than Jeff.
