Monday, November 22nd, BOA president Carl Goldfield appointed me to serve as a member of the BOA's Finance Committee. My appointment to this important BOA committee fills the vacancy left by Roland Lemar (Ward 9) who resigned from the BOA after his election to be the next State Representative for the 96th District.
I look forward to working and collaborating as a member of the Finance Committee as the work to prepare a City Budget for FY11-12 begins.
Due to increased time commitments required of Finance Committee members, I did resign my membership on the BOA's Education Committee. However, time permitting, I will certainly try to continue to attend Education Committee meetings and participate as a welcomed guest of this committee (all Aldermen are encouraged and invited to participate and contribute on any and all BOA committees whether or not they're an appointed/voting member). President Goldfield appointed the BOA's new Alderman for the 9th Ward, Matt Smith, to take my spot on the Education Committee.
In addition to my new membership on the Finance Committee, I'm a member of the Legislation Committee, and a member and vice-chair of the City Services and Environmental Policy Committee. I am also one of the two BOA elected representatives to the Capital Projects Committee.
