I had the great honor of working for Mayor White from 1971 through 1977. He was a tough boss, always keeping you on your feet, but he was not a micro-manager. He was a kind boss who knew his staff well. He was my mentor, whether he knew it or not. I got to know his family and to all of you I can say that I loved your husband and father and he has always been and always will be an inspiration to my career and to my life.
