Comms

I'm running for Communications Officer because I believe an informed community is essential  to its well-being. Good decision-making depends on people having reliable, accurate  information.  

As important as information is how we distribute it. I believe it's the job of the CO to be open  to new technologies and optimize existing formats. Zoom meetings are now a way of life but  can be made better. Stakeholders are data-hungry and constantly searching for answers to  

make their voices heard. Offering more complete repositories of information is one way to  help. 

I believe my years of experience as a producer, writer, small business owner --and  willingness to explore the best way to keep you informed make me the right person for the  job.
