CALDWELL FOR HIS MORE THAN <br />SEVENTEEN (17) YEARS OF DEDICATED AND <br />SELFLESS PUBLIC SERVICE TO THE CITIZENS OF <br />THE CITY OF SOUTH BEND, INDIANA <br />WHEREAS, the Common Council proudly acknowledges that James R. Caldwell began his <br />public service career with the Building Department in 1987; and <br />WHEREAS, we are indeed fortunate that then Mayor Joseph E. Kernan had the foresight to <br />hire James R. Caldwell away from the Building Department, so that Jim could use his special people <br />skills as the Mayor's Administrative Assistant for Neighborhoods; <br />WHEREAS, over the course of Jim's many years of dedicated and caring public service, <br />James R. Caldwell has more than earned the title of being City's "Chief Trouble- Shooter Par <br />Excellence "; and as now Lieutenant Governor Kernan recalled he "...played the invaluable role of <br />bringing a human side to city government "; and <br />WHEREAS, we will truly miss Jim, but we have a multitude of recollections and fond <br />memories of seeing him responding to every major police and fire incident in the City over the years; <br />of always responding with compassion, understanding and respect for persons in distress or need; <br />
