Dear Mrs. Brownfield and family,

I was honored to have worked with David for many of the years he served on the Hamilton Public Utilities Commission. His advice and counsel helped our town provide reasonably priced, municipally owned utility services to our many residents and helped me as City Manager in guiding the direction of those vast municipal businesses. David served us all well, he was a good man, and I join you in sorrow at his passing. Please accept my sincere condolences.
