Farewell to a Friend

Last week we said goodbye to Councilman Keith Romaine, who passed away suddenly, 0nly two weeks after being re-elected to a second term. Councilman Romaine, who was instrumental in helping us with several issues here including Smith Landing Park at Shirley Beach and the buoys at the Smith Point Marina, was always responsive to our organization and will be missed. Its always nice when an elected official takes the time to understand the problems facing their constituents and utilizes the various departments at their fingertips to help the community they represent. In the short time he represented us, Keith Romaine and his staff did their best to address whatever concerns we brought their way. We were looking forward to his second term to see what other projects we would be able to implement to improve our neighborhood. Councilman Romaine was certainly a friend to the Smith Point Homeowners and his successor will have some big shoes to fill. Sadly, we bid our friend Keith Romaine - "Farewell."
