The Dalles Mayor Wilcox moving on

The term of The Dalles Mayor Jim Wilcox is winding down and his farewell speech at the final council meeting of his term also served as a literary lesson. That came as no surprise to city officials or the 25-member audience because the mayor has opened every meeting by reading a quote by founding father Thomas Jefferson, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence, or another notable figure in history.
