I was pleasantly pleased to see Kurt Blomquist has been a recognized excellence selection by the American Public Works Association, as mentioned in The Sentinel on May 18.

Congratulations Kurt!

The work he has done in Keene has been nothing but outstanding; just super. The way our streets have been upgraded is testimony to his ability to work with the other city departments to get things done in a manner that best benefits the community.

As for me and I’m sure the rest of the citizens of Keene are most appreciative of what he has done in the last 25 years to make our city not only attractive, but a better place to live.

Thanks again, Kurt, for a job well done.
