Letters to the Editor - - The Daily Press
Desotell was an outstanding representative of Delta County Road Commission
I was stunned to say the least upon learning of the dismissal of Mark Desotell
as managing director/engineer of the Delta County Road Commission
.In my opinion Mark was an outstanding representative of your local Road Commission.
When approached for guidance and direction on improving Co.Rd. 511 to serve the new quarry on the Stonington Peninsula, Mark
provided the leadership like the true professional that he
worked with the state of Michigan and local authorities to secure the necessary funding to upgrade a portion of Co Rd. 511 to a Class A road for year-around operation to serve this new quarry, a facility that will eventually provide 30 full-time jobs for local residents.
's direction we would not have met these people, all of whom exhibited the same level of professionalism as Mark.
The loss of Mark Desotell
and also that of Brian Horst will long be felt by the residents of your communities.
One can only wish Mark
much success and the professional respect he
