I am seeking to be elected Chair of the District 10 Como Community Council because of my respect and admiration for the Como Community Council, its members, and for the community it represents. I hope to continue the work of past Chairs to ensure a fair and open decision making process, while supporting and implementing the council’s efforts to improve our community. I am a homeowner and community member. I am vested in my neighborhood. As such, I appreciate and wish to maintain the Council’s diligence in ensuring the inclusion of community members in governmental decisions. My experience as a board member and chair of an ad hoc committee cemented my belief that community involvement can only enhance our neighborhoods. It also cemented my hope to facilitate effective and efficient Council meetings. If elected Chair, I will do my best to ensure that the Council continues to contribute through meaningful efforts to improve our community.
