11/15/2006: "Saying Goodbye To SI"
(Former County Administrator David Goldsmith honors Si Stephens at a recent dinner)
A large crowd of friends, associates, clients, county and state government officials joined Auditor Si Stephens in a farewell dinner in honor of his twenty-four years serving the citizens of San Juan County. Joining the large party of well-wishers was Secretary of State Sam Reed, who joined in the good natured "roast" of Auditor Stephens.
The Island Guardian asked Si what his plans are for now, and he said he would still be involved for sometime in the accounting business that he recently sold on Lopez, and that while they may sell the Lopez house, they plan to purchase a larger boat, which they would keep at Lopez, using it as a summer base when they return from warmer climes in the winter.
