Dear Editor,

I am writing to express my deep gratitude for the exceptional leadership demonstrated by our former Sanibel Mayor Holly Smith, in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. As a resident of this city, I have personally witnessed the remarkable efforts made by her in coordinating relief and recovery efforts.

During the disaster, Mayor Smith showed unwavering commitment to the people of our city. Her tireless efforts in providing guidance, support, and comfort to those in need were truly remarkable and inspiring. The remarkable dedication and hard work that she put into helping our community recover is something that will be remembered for years to come.

In addition, I would like to commend Mayor Smith for her crucial role in securing funding and resources from the state and federal government. The Mayor’s persistence and determination in advocating for our city’s needs ensured that our community received the support it deserved. This was instrumental in ensuring that our city could rebuild after the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian.

As a former mayor who will remain on the Sanibel city council, Now Council person Smith’s continued presence in our local government is a great asset to our community. Her experience, knowledge, and leadership will be invaluable in helping us face any future challenges that may arise. We are all aware of her unwavering dedication to our water quality issues and look forward to her continued efforts on behalf of our city.

On behalf of myself and my fellow citizens, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for Mayor Smith’s leadership and dedication to our community during one of its darkest moments. Her service to our city has left an indelible mark, and we are deeply grateful for her contributions.

Robert Brooks
