New Beginnings

Now that most of you have gotten the Annual Election materials from Ross Morgan, you have seen that there are four open seats for the upcoming election. Three of the incumbents are running again – Joe Khoury, Dan Frank, and Ben Ginsburg. I have decided not to run again this year, so I’ll be retiring. I have truly enjoyed serving on the Board of Directors for the last six years, it has been an honor and a learning experience. I originally ran with several goals in mind, and I am happy to be able to say that I was able to meet nearly all of them. I truly believe that through collaboration and compromise, in addition to a lot of hard work, we’ve turned this ship around. I hope you agree with me that the Village Green is a better place now – I believe that we are on the right track to move forward.

It has been a pleasure serving with this current Board, and I wholeheartedly endorse all three of the incumbents. We may not have seen eye to eye on every issue, but I know that they all have the best interests of the Village Green in mind. I encourage you to vote for Joe Khoury, Dan Frank, and Ben Ginsburg.

Of the other two candidates running, I believe that Gabriela Worrel would be a wonderful addition to the Board. I don't know her well, but from what I've seen, she has a good, positive energy, and from her successful work on the Community Garden here, I know that she has good ideas, initiative, organization, and the drive to see them through. She has my full endorsement, and my vote to fill my seat on the Board.

Whatever you believe, and whoever you personally endorse, please remember to exercise your right, and VOTE!
