Our kind ambassador deserves kudos | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Ken Lundgren is known to islanders as the downtown police officer who walks here and there, rain or shine, enforcing parking restrictions. We have

seen him marking tires and we have seen him being challenged by violators.

Well, Ken takes on more than this official duty. He is quite the kind ambassador of our town assisting our many visitors and greeting locals.

Most obviously, Ken is our number one, self-appointed, litter patrolman! He makes our downtown streets and sidewalks clean by diligently picking up litter as he moves along his way. This is not in his official job description, I know.

Our village along Winslow is more beautiful because of Ken’s efforts. As a merchant I hear our visitors express positive statements about the village. It is clean and adorned with luscious flower baskets and neatly landscaped plantings.

Kudos to Ken for his dedication!
