Animal control done professionally

Hello Mayor and Council,

I want to apologize to the people who were in attendance at the June 6, 2016, city council meeting.

I am not a crowd person and was unable to stay and speak. I have come to a point in my life where family and peace of mind are of utmost importance. I will always be grateful for the stray and unwanted animals; they were special to me and were my bread and butter so to speak.

The new truck and animal control officer are huge assets to the City of Socorro. The new director, Victoria Murphy, Is a true professional in the animal control business.

She has shown me that being patient pays off.

Even though animals may still roam within the city, I believe that the city is being served properly by these professionals. I think after all of these years there have been many improvements to the Animal Services both within the shelter and the field.

I again apologize to the mayor, council and citizens for not staying at the meeting, and for me not speaking. The plaque is a beauty and was greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Frank Marquez
