‘I hope they remember that I cared’

David Lansford, Clovis’ mayor the past 12 years, is stepping down next week.

We have an in-depth feature scheduled for Sunday’s paper.

In a two-hour interview this week, Lansford talked about highlights, and lowlights, in his career as a public servant.

How would he like Clovis residents to remember him?

“I hope they’ll remember that city government became a more respectable organization. … I would want people to remember that those I served with, as well as myself, were sincerely working to improve the community. And … I hope they remember that I cared.”
