To the Editor:
How thrilled I was for a moment to learn in “Dukes County commissioners approve treasurer” (May 17) that John D. Clarke Jr. was deservedly elected to the Airport Commission. A man whom I have always referred to as “a gentle … never mind humble genius.” A brilliant asset and resource with annums of business experience throughout his lifetime, along with education and degrees from the finest institutions he can probably not even keep track of. Limitless. But genuinely a card-carrying man of principle, honesty along with the finest of ethics. Gracious, incisive, what-it-takes vitality. The mark of a man. In reality, bereft but never leavened!
