LETTER: Tetzlaff and Mlada were vital to Habitat’s Ozaukee mission

To Ozaukee Press:

I would like to thank two individuals who have played important roles in helping continue Habitat Humanity Ozaukee’s mission of helping to put God’s love into action and bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.

Together with our supporters we build strength, stability and self-reliance through home ownership.

Randy Tetzlaff recognized the need and wondered why Ozaukee County was the only county in the state of Wisconsin that did not have a Habitat for Humanity organization.

Through his leadership and a great deal of hard work, and with help from Pastor Jeff Suddendorf and other volunteers, a Habitat for Humanity chapter in Ozaukee County was established.

Randy served as the board president for Habitat for Humanity in Ozaukee from 1999 to 2003, the year Habitat completed its first home in Port Washington.

He has continued to be a great supporter of our efforts as we have now built nine homes in Port Washington and one in Grafton.

Randy has just retired from his position as the City of Port Washington as director of planning and development, we thank him for all of his support and wish him well.

Another supporter of Habitat in Port Washington has also stepped down from his government role and we wish to thank him also for his support.

Tom Mlada was always there to help us while he served as the mayor. He came to many of our ground breaking and dedication events and we will miss his efforts to help us.

We wish Tom well as he begins the next phase of his career working as the director of development for the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust.
