MARION — A local man was commended for his service to CAN DO! as the main order of business at the County Commissioners meeting Thursday morning, Aug. 21.

The board passed a resolution to recognize Daniel Burkhart who has served several terms on the CAN DO! board, as chairman from Dec. 2007 to April 2008 when he filled in temporarily as president.

“He has taken the reins the last few years and done a fabulous job of it,” Commissioner Josh Daniels said.

Burkhart said he appreciated the recognition.

“We need new jobs in Marion so much,” he said. “The work I ended up doing in the last few four months was much more than I expected.”

“Though it was tremendously difficult, it was probably on the of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done.”
