I want to thank the outgoing members of the Indian Trail town council, and also take time to congratulate our new mayor and incoming members of town council. I am truly excited for the new direction you can potentially give Indian Trail. I especially want to thank Mayor Quinn for the hard work he’s done these four years. If I were to describe one core conviction of Mayor Quinn, it would be one of self-sacrifice for the people he represented.
Mayor Quinn helped put Indian Trail on the map with Family Circle magazine, and when the contract with the Union County Sheriffs Office was in question, he fought alongside us to educate the public on the benefits of contracting. He even took the time to knock on doors to speak directly to the people. Not a lot of politicians will do this, but he did.
When I first met Mayor Quinn I was struck by his personable demeanor, and though at times he tangled with other members of the council, it was driven by the desire to fight for his core convictions and the town he loves.
Mayor Quinn would not be complete without his wife Beth. Beth Quinn supported her husband during the good and bad times, and sacrificed time with her husband knowing how important his work for the town was. Thank you.
