Grateful for helping hands in Belleville

January 9, 2014 

It is time to give a big thank you to Belleville Mayor Mark Eckert and Police Chief Bill Clay, along with members of the Police Department, who are making sure homeless people on the streets of Belleville are given a voucher to give them a warm place during these sub-zero days.

Too often our politicians are portrayed negatively and without a heart. I am pleased to see how sensitive all our city fathers are to the homeless. I can assure you our city leaders have a heart and care deeply about Belleville.

May this spirit continue as we attempt to help those who are impoverished and have no voice.
