"With much heartache I put in a letter of resignation to KCSCI on June 7, 2012. My name was cleared from all allegations and it was a difficult choice to make, but I do not want a political fight to distract from the senior center and the wonderful people up there. My time with the seniors was one of my most rewarding experiences. It is an honor to have known each one of them and I will forever hold them in my heart. Being a part of our Meals on Wheels program, seeing the joy in our homebound seniors, and meeting all the wonderful volunteers has been fulfilling. I hate that my time at the senior center was cut short, there are many needs and great things to come with the senior center. I know I have made an impact in there lives just as much as they have mine. I will hold the Layden Senior Citizen Center close to my heart, it was an honor to serve them.”
Jennifer Helms is continuing to seek the Place 5 seat in the Forney City Council race and said that she hopes that the campaign and election process can now get back to being about the city issues and not about personal issues. Early voting has already begun at the Forney Sub-Courthouse and Election Day is on Tuesday, June 12, at the Forney Sub-Courthouse only. This run-off vote between Jennifer Helms and Mary Penn will be the only issue on the ballot. See inForney.com on June 12 for a live election update article.
