    BLACKBURN of tennessee in the house of representatives Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Mrs. BLACKBURN. Mr. Speaker, the mark of a great community is found in its leadership. Hard working, always professional, and dedicated to long-term vision are the key qualities of a strong local leader. For the past 23 years, Brentwood, Tennessee has had the great honor of Mike Walker's leadership as City Manager.

    Mike Walker has a strong history in leading and leading well. Serving as the administrative head of Brentwood's municipal government, Mike has been responsible for full service government including a $60 million annual budget and 250 employees. In addition to his outstanding service to the City of Brentwood, Mike's legacy of excellence reaches to Oak Ridge, Knoxville, and the International City/County Management Association.

    It takes a great number of talented people to keep a city running. Keeping such an excellent city like Brentwood on the right track requires more than talent; it requires excellence, dedication, and leadership. The City of Brentwood has been lucky to have Mike Walker leading the way. I ask my colleagues to join with me, Linda, Lauren, Evan, and Travis, in celebrating Mike's outstanding legacy of service and commitment.
