For nearly three decades, Coulee Dam has benefited from the reliably calm and deliberate approach taken by Councilmember Bob Poch, who announced his resignation last week.
While it’s understandable that after 28 years he’s decided to step away, he will not leave an easy vacancy to fill.
Poch’s nearly unflappable public presence has often served to calm a brewing storm when the council meeting room filled with unhappy citizens. And anyone diligent enough to keep up with the sometimes arcane details needed to navigate municipal government for decades is a rare individual.
Thanks go to Bob Poch for his long and valuable service.
