"Being ‘Rememberable’

"It's not easy to impact a group of unmotivated teenagers but it’s impressive when that happens. The youth in our community are our responsibility and no one takes that to heart more than Denny Laufenburger.  Denny is ‘Rememberable’ by so many of the young people in our region. His wisdom, experience and genuine caring are reasons I’m proud to have him lead our City.  "
