I'm happy to say that my first meeting was a great success!

I've been appointed to two committees, both rather close to my passion.

The first committee is the Zoo Liaison Committee. My first job was at the Zoo, and I have had many good times there, from Zoolights to sleepovers in the aquarium (as a kid) to a wonderful homecoming dinner my senior year in high school by the shark tank.

The second committee is the Capital Improvement Committee, which deals with the improvements from the 2005 capital bond. This will be very interesting, because 2005 was the year we went around to see all the parks, bond packet in tow. Being active in that process will be a good continuation of that experience.

Looking to be a good year.
