To the editor:
The June issue of the Business NH magazine has a very good feature article on Berlin entitled “Berlin's Steady Recovery” by Kathie Ragsdale. I found it to be a positive, yet balanced, assessment of where our city stands.
Several of our city and business leaders are quoted, but one particular comment deserves to be mentioned. Richard Rosen, CEO of American Ag Energy, was interviewed regarding plans to build two greenhouses that will bring 80 jobs to our city. He outlines three factors that influenced their decision to locate here. I quote his second reason: “Second, the city of Berlin is run by some of the most qualified, competent people I've ever worked with in the United States, and that extends to the people in the community.”
Too often, it's easy for us to criticize our local government and overlook all of the good that is being done. To all of our leaders and especially those who so generously give of their time and talent in government, volunteer boards and commissions, a heartfelt thank you. We know your time is valuable also and the work can often be thankless.
