Reader-submitted: Mayor Miller Replaced My Child’s Stolen Bike

opinionLast night, my 11 year old Yossi was joining the Night Out Against Crime in Pine Park, when he called me up crying that he can’t find his bike. I immediately drove down to the park to help him find his bike, but to no avail.

As I was walking around the park, I spotted two police officers patrolling the area and asked them to help me to find the bike. They listned to me, but told me they didn’t see it.

As Mayor Menashe Miller saw me with my crying and sad son, he asked me what happened, so I told him my son’s bike has obviously been stolen and we’re trying to locate it.

When the Mayor heard this, he asked my son how much the bike cost – it was an expensive 300 dollar bike.

I was shocked when Mayor Miller took out $300 and gave it to my son, and said “here boy, buy yourself a new bike.” I didn’t want to let my son take the money, but the Mayor insisted, and just shoved it into my Yossi’s hand. His face lit up!

Menashe, there is no town that has a mayor like you!

  1. This is just one story that is known about our wonderful mayor. He does much much more without people recognizing him for it or publishing letters about it. He personifies osek btzorchei tzibur bemunah!!

  2. My son got lost yesterday at the park, a kind mother bought him up to the stage. Mayor Miller calmed him down with giving him a prize and his business card (my son wanted to call Mayor Miller at 7:00 this morning because he had his phone #!!!) thank you Mayor Miller for calming my son down and helping me find him.

  3. There is no one like Mayor Menashe Miller. His midos and metchlichkeit are an inspiration to all.
    We call him the 4 M’s Major Mayor Menashe Miller. I think we can add a fifth M as well, Mentch.
    We are proud to live in your complex!
