Washington City: Government

Message from Mayor Kenneth Neilson....

February 2014

I hope that your 2014 has started out the way you had anticipated and hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.

There is a great poem by Robert Frost that I wanted to share with you. I am sure many of you are familiar with this poem. It is called "The Road Not Taken"

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood. And sorry I could not travel both. And be one traveler, long I stood. And looked down one as far as I could. To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, and having perhaps the better claim. Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there, had worn them really about the same.
And both that morning equally lay in leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh. Somewhere ages and ages hence: two roads diverged in a wood, and I--I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."

Where is your path taking you?

Your Mayor
