What can we say? Many thanks to Commissioner Bush for taking time to not only speak to us but for for being so gracious as to personally visit with so many of our attendees! (Bottom line is he's simply a cool guy!) We also learned a lot more about what his job entails as what he is currently working on to better assist us.
