I also appreciate and am thankful for all of the people that have served on my staff over the years and the important roles they have played in serving citizens in a wide range of duties and responsibilities.” He also recognized and was appreciative of the great relationships he has had with of all the Madison county constitutional officers, county commissioners, county coordinators, judges, department heads and staff during his tenure. In closing, Sanders thanked Madison County for its support and for honoring him with this public trust. “But it is time to pass this opportunity to someone else,” he wrote.
