To the Editor:
I want to publicly express my deepest gratitude for our team of town health care professionals who are working exhaustively around the clock to regularly inform, update, and protect the public.
Each of us must do our own part for ourselves, our families, and our neighbors in preparation for – and hopeful prevention of – all that is uber-rapidly intensifying in this global pandemic.
Amid the ubiquitous mounting stress, health-wise and economically, it’s easy to forget that our first responders, health care and (emergency) medical providers, law enforcement, and government officials are real people with their own personal/family concerns and responsibilities.
Given the social distancing mandates in place, this letter is perhaps the best and only way to say a heartfelt “thank you” to the following Hull Heroes: Town Manager Philip Lemnios; Public Health Director Joyce Sullivan; Public Health Nurse Joan Taverna (Board of Health); Fire Chief Christopher Russo; Police Chief John Dunn; Acting School Superintendent Judith Kuehn; Council on Aging Director Barbara Lawlor; Town Counsel James Lampke; Deputy Fire Chief William Frazer; Deputy Police Chief Neil Reilly; and Schools Facility Manager David DeGennaro.
