    Message from the GM: From Strength to Strength

    It is a pleasure to write these words after having been on a medical leave of absence from EID. Facing medical challenges can focus the mind and provide a new vantage point for addressing immediate and future challenges. So it is not only a pleasure to return to the important challenges facing an organization of EID’s scope and complexity, it’s also a distinct pleasure to resume working with the men and women who make the district run smoothly and efficiently.
