Thank you for your excellent proposal on the water project. Getting all the key players to finally agree on something was an extraordinary feat. Your presentation to the board was very organized, professional, and effective, and your ability to patiently take on a barrage of questions, answering each one so articulately yet in understandable terms for the lay person, was a treat to watch! I greatly appreciate your excellent preparation and research. Congratulations on a job well done.
