Princeton - Sue Leider

Dear Sue Leider,

You have been very helpful to myself since the first day I started. Informing me about the Princeton area and the community, as well as the Palmer Bus here and what makes this the Princeton Palmer Bus Service. Making me feel very welcomed to Princeton.

You are always willing to help out. Whether it's asking if we need the help or if it’s us coming to you for the help, even when its to cover a last minute trip or to help dispatch in the office. You are always willing to step up and take on any task no matter how big or small.



There have been many changes to the Princeton location since I started and you have been a leading example when a change is implemented. Having someone who jumps on board with change is great and becomes very helpful in getting others then to accept the change. When something new gets put into place you are always one of the first people to double check and make sure that you understand it and are doing it correctly.

You always do what you can to be at work. You do what you can to plan around your work schedule so that you don’t miss your route. Having someone like this and who understands the importance of being at work is one of the greatest things I believe.

Thank you Sue for all that you have done this past year to make it a great one!
