    My holiday wish is for people to see how lucky they are to have Susan Rzucidlo in their community. Susan is always ready to lend a hand for voter registration, food drive or other community effort. She is a kind and caring person who thinks about the impact of public policy on others and is ready to lead when she sees that a job needs to be done. She is a wonderful asset in this community.
