Friends: I am saddened to hear the news of the passing of former CD14 Councilmember Art Snyder. Art was a colorful character and a throwback politician who marched to the beat of his own drum. Through it all, Art Snyder faithfully represented an ever-changing Council District 14 for nearly two decades and for that, we all owe him a huge debt. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, family and friends.
