Patrick Vergne is a gem

I have a friend whose son did something slightly wrong while at the beach. One of Patrick’s lifeguards was about to call the police. Patrick calmly intervened and simply called the boy’s parents. They were grateful and assured Patrick that the boy would be reprimanded. Due to Patrick’s understanding, wisdom and compassion, the family of the boy avoided extensive and expensive court costs. Their son is now a model citizen having learned his lesson, and having no record. Patrick Vergne knows this community and is the epitome of a public servant.
