It is quite an honor to serve as the East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood Team’s new chairperson. I look forward to further contributing to the community and working towards achieving our neighborhood goals. Some of my personal goals for the year include improving the team’s web presence to better communicate with neighbors and area businesses, developing a consistent process for handling agenda items and citizen communications and coordinating more opportunities to enhance the lives of those neighbors most in need. I am most grateful to all of the team members for their continued hard work and efforts to preserve our neighborhood keep it safe and grow in a manner that will benefit us all.
