Rosie Steffens is the best COA executive director

To the Editor:

I was in shock and awe when I read the article in the Leelanau Enterprise regarding, Rosie Steffens, the executive director for the Leelanau County Commission on Aging.

I not only know Rosie personally, but also professionally and I can say without a doubt that she is one of the best, if not the best, executive director any Commission/Council on Aging could ever be fortunate to get.

She is a hard working, honest, dedicated and loyal individual who has high standards of integrity and morals. She personally visited everyone of the seniors who needed or requested services to make sure their needs were being met.

For 26 years, she unselfishly took time out of her own personal life to play Santa Claus for her seniors so that they too could enjoy Christmas. Since reading this article, I have come to the conclusion that someone has an agenda to meet at someone else’s expense.

At this time, I ask all seniors and everyone else who knows Rosie, to stand up and be counted in her behalf, either by email, calling or by a letter. She has been there for you and now you should be there for her. Thank you.
