Dear Mr. Freeman:

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter regarding my experience working

with Rick Darling, Project Manager for casfle and cooke, tnc.

ln my position with the City of Sierra Vista, I have worked professionally with Mr.

Darling since 1985 when he was a Project Superintendent for Estes Homes and I was a Building lnspector.

Rick strives for perfection and is very successful because he is professional, fair,

and he understands the intricate relationships that need to exist between a

developer/builder and city staff. I have always had an excellent working

relationship with Rick, and his philosophy was to do his job much bette-r than the

minimum standards required by code, without additionaiexpense.

Rick has the character to stand up for what is correct and satisfy everyone's

needs, but not just go-with-the-flow. And he has the personality to deal with the

wide variety of clients encountered in his everyday dealings.

I see Rick Darling as a very valuable asset to Castle and Cooke, lnc. and would

recommend him for the position of Vice President of Sierra Vista Operations.
