ALTON -- With just three days left in office, Mayor Don Sandidge says he is satisfied with what he accomplished during his three terms.
"I laid out a plan when I started, and I finished most of it," Sandidge said. "It has been my privilege to serve as mayor the last 12 years. I've enjoyed it, and I tried to stay active in the community. I'm 72, and it's time to retire. The first time I retired, I was 52, and I was too young. Now, I'm at the right age."
