**Editor’s Note: This Letter to the Editor was submitted by William Brown of Ogichidaa Mawansomag

Edward was the first alderman (outside of the Cemetery Commission) who approached the Native Community with a positive attitude and willingness to consider our position.  Despite being the unpopular vision once the issue was pursued, Edward stood for what he believed was correct; earning respect from myself and others in the Native Community.

Best Regards
