The Crestwood Board of Aldermen honored three residents last Tuesday who have served on the city's board and commissions:
- The late Gerald "Jerry" Thomas was a longtime member of the Crestwood-Sunset Hills Chamber of Commerce and served on the board of directors from 2002-2007. He served on both the Crestwood Police Board and Neighborhood Watch Committee. His wife, Nancy, accepted the resolution on his behalf.
- Charlene Braun, appointed to the city's Neighborhood Watch Committee in 1997, has also led two tax initiatives: Proposition 1 and Proposition S. She was voted Citizen of the Year in 2007. She currently serves as the chairwoman for Crestwood Community Gardeners.
- Jerry Bratsch is a previous member of the Crestwood Police Board and Charter Commission. He is the current treasurer of the Crestwood Veterans Memorial Committee, which sponsored last week's Veterans Day ceremony.
