I have elsewhere and publicly offered my gratitude to members of the Rappahannock County Board of Supervisors, the various constitutional officers with whom I served, and to the staff of all county offices who I have had the enormous privilege of working with over my tenure as county administrator. I wanted to offer a final public “Thank you” to my enormously gifted assistant, Candace Wroth.
I have depended upon her to make me look capable or at least competent, to rescue me from pointless meetings with hastily conjured “important phone calls” or mentions of “that other meeting you need to get to,” all the while being kind, thoughtful and friendly in the face of adversity. Her capacity, “can-do” spirit and dedication have been my rock in my public life, and I owe her more than I can ever repay.
Thank you, Candy!
John W. McCarthy
