HydroFest has afforded me the opportunity to work with Mayor Dollar and to get to know her — as Guntersville’s cheerleader, leader, and at times enforcer. She has done a phenomenal job, not only supporting big events but also with city services and infrastructure. One need only take a ride around this postcard we call Guntersville to see my point.
