From the Commissioner - November 2021

Last week we celebrated Veterans Day. We have many license holders who have served our country in the military. Your sacrifices have not gone unnoticed, and I am grateful for your service.

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it.  I hope you enjoy Thanksgiving with friends and family.  I am especially thankful that it seems we can gather more safely this year.  This pandemic has lasted longer than I ever expected.  I see a potential light at the end of the tunnel and look towards the future with hope.
