Former MDD director aided Rockdale projects

Dear editor,

Tom Manskey came to our community to work in an area not familiar to most of us, the Rockdale Municipal Development District.

From the very beginning, he distinguished himself by making it clear that he wanted to help in every way possible and that he wanted to know this community and its citizens.

He helped the Kay Theater, the depot, the El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail and probably others that I don’t know about.

His success must have been noted by others because he was offered a professional opportunity which he would have been unwise to refuse.

He resigned, and our loss is someone else’s gain.

I think that Rockdale will always owe him a debt of gratitude for what he did in the short time that he was here.
