Rich Walsh doesn’t do it for the recognition.
But the award was certainly a nice benefit.
Walsh, a local attorney and former Keizer City Councilor, was honored with the President’s Award at the Jan. 26 Keizer First Citizen Awards Banquet at Keizer Civic Center.
“It was a huge honor,” said Walsh, currently chair of the Keizer Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. “I really appreciated it, I really did. I like being involved in things. I have since leaving the council at the end of 2010. I have tried to keep involved and make a change in the community.”
