Local government simply can’t function without the effort of people who live here and volunteer their time to do the work that needs to be done. I have been proud to serve alongside all the other volunteers on the ZBA, and I hope to continue. The people who come before our board are our neighbors. It is so important to always listen respectfully and have a fair process for making decisions.
