Sue Flint attends her last assembly meeting Monday. She plans on spending more time with her family.
Sue Flint served her last day on the borough assembly Monday after stepping down after four years as a member.
She thanked Mayor Mark Jensen, the assembly, staff, family and the citizens of Petersburg.
"These four years have been exciting and I came up with my own little top six list," Flint said.
First on the list was the creation of a smoke free workplace followed by the revitalization of Mountain View Manor, the creation of the new fire hall, finding a good city manager and the opening of the new library.
"Number six is the big one: borough formation," Flint said. "That's what got me up here in the first place, why I ran for this position and I'm so glad to say that we did it. After 50 years of statehood we are finally a borough."
Flint encouraged the rest of the assembly to keep up the good work. She said she will pay better attention to future assembly deliberations than before she was a member.
"It's like owning a home," Flint said. "You have to continually do repairs, maintenance and replacements to keep everything running smoothly."
