"One of the most important qualities of a leader is to listen, and my first priority has been to meet with as many of the citizens of Decatur as I can. Whether the individuals that I met were struggling or prospering there has been one common theme: Decatur is a kind, caring, compassionate community. Decatur is a city poised for positive transformation with its best days ahead of it." -David Horn
