Last night at the Burlington Firehouse Gallery, Mayor Miro Weinberger presented the Ken Schatz award to my late wife Sally Fox. The beautiful plaque reads to: “Sally Fox, for her extraordinary commitment to Community Justice. The Ken Schatz award recognizes those who ensure that offenders who accept responsibility are given a second chance, that victims receive the support that they need, and that community needs arising from crime or conflict are addressed.”
In accepting the award on Sally ‘s behalf, I was able to relate wonderful memories of her friendships and experiences over her years at the Community Justice Center, but they also made me sad. It was helpful and comforting to have so many of Sally friends on hand, including my dear friend and Senate seatmate, Sen. Diane Snelling.
