It is with sincere pride that I announce having won the Marina Business Seat on the Downtown Community Planning Council (DCPC) during the 2015 Elections held on Monday March 16 and Tuesday March 17. I was previously elected to DCPC representing Little Italy (Residential Tenant Seat) and look forward to continued service of the Downtown Community with an amazing group of leaders.
Over the last two years our group has made a meaningful impact in the community, evaluating and approving multiple new projects while otherwise working with City Council and Civic San Diego to make Downtown a thriving community for residents, tourists, businesses and the rest of San Diego County.
Other members elected this cycle include James Lawson, Larry Cline, Judith Radke, Pat Stark, Andrea Ferentz, Alex Ward Claudia Escala, Figaro Nauta, Kimberly Brewer, Luke Vinci, Bill Orabone and Scott Barnett. These individuals, some of whom have served previously, are all committed community leaders that I look forward to serving with.
A special thanks to Laura Garrett who has served DCPC for several years and is now departing the group having led with grace as Board Chair the past few years. I am proud to have had the opportunity to get to know Laura admiring her leadership, fairness and ability to lead by example.
