Dear Marty Kiar,
We want to express our deepest gratitude for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your wealth of experience with our students. Your insightful presentation on the intricate workings of the Broward Property Appraiser's office and the complexities of tax generation and expenditure was not just educational, but also highly enlightening.
Your story of personal triumph, perseverance and achievement as a County Commissioner and State Representative instilled in our young minds a profound respect and understanding of public service. It was a vivid testament to the significance of determination, hard work, and commitment in pursuit of one's goals.
Your encouragement for our youth to actively participate in the voting process, to be informed citizens and to take responsibility for their civic duties was indeed inspiring. It left a lasting impact and stirred them to become involved in shaping their community's future.
Lastly, your heartfelt sharing of your personal story and your role as a doting father was moving. It showed our students a side of public service that's often overlooked - that one can juggle the responsibilities of a public official and a loving parent, striking a balance that many often find challenging.
Thank you once again, Mr. Kiar, for your time, wisdom, and openness. We are sincerely grateful for your contribution to our educational mission. We hope that this is just the beginning of a long and fruitful association with you and the Broward Property Appraiser's office.
Bob Sutton, Chairman
