Yesterday’s answer:
A   Mayor
From the life of David Bruce Haight:   At a large gathering of citizens attending a city council meeting in Palo Alto, California, the mayor did a startling thing. Just before he brought the gavel down to end the meeting, he announced his resignation. A wave of shocked disbelief swept the hall. The mayor was very popular and doing an outstanding job. “Why?” several people nearby asked him. His response: “Because a kindly gentleman in Salt Lake City, who I revered as a Prophet, has called me to go.” The mayor was David B. Haight. The kindly gentleman was President David O. McKay, and the call was to serve as a mission president in Scotland. The people of Palo Alto felt so bad about losing this talented and beloved civil servant that they suggested they protest the mission call by sending a delegation to Salt Lake City. But of course Elder Haight would not countenance such an action. When any call came to serve the Lord, he would go.
