It is good to see Mayors Roberson, Jenkins and Stutzman standing together to recognize the work the Dr. Wait has done in this past year to protect and improve the health of all residents of Elkhart County.

This has been a trying time for persons committed to public service. May there be more of this standing together to seek the welfare of all in our county - you remind us that this is a shared work that belongs to all of us.

Dr. Wait, thank you for your service in this past year - and your ongoing commitment to provide quality healthcare for all into the future!
