Mr. Devin Fairbarn Costa Mesa, California
It is my sincerest pleasure to inform you that you have been selected as the April 2006 recipient of Costa Mesa's Mayor's Award! The Mayor's Award Program was designed to recognize individuals in the community who have displayed exemplary qualities of leadership and volunteerism, or have performed an outstanding act of service.
During your route delivering pizzas for OC Pizza, you observed a toddler walking along College Avenue alone. Common sense told you something was not right and you took it upon your self to contact the Costa Mesa Police Department and stay with the approximately 2 year-old girl until the police arrived. Your quick actions and Good Samaritan approach to this situation provided a happy ending. Had you not cared, nor stopped to assist the toddler, the outcome could have been vastly different.
On behalf of the City Council, I am most appreciative of the altruism you have displayed. You are an asset to our community, and we look forward to honoring you. As you have already confirmed with my staff, we will publicly honor you at the City Council meeting of April 18, 2006 in City Council Chambers, 77 Fair Drive, Costa Mesa at 6:00 p.m.
Allan R. Mansoor
