I have had considered it both an honor and privilege to work with Nick Cerino. Nick just retired on June 30, 2006, after 32 years of honorable service to the City of Chicago Department of Water Management. I have had many a laugh with Nick’s sharp wit and an ability to say what he feels. Nick was always a man’s man. I respect this good looking Italian that retired with a full head of hair. (How did he pull that off?) Nick has only one regret, he applied for promotions and never had a fair shot. Thanks to the Sorich Conviction, Mayor Daley might think twice about breaking the law, and cheating great talent like Nick. God bless you Nick Cerino. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
