This year, six positions will be up for election to our neighborhood board; chair, vice-chair and four at-large directors. We will need to fill our secretary, newsletter editor, web site manager, and event coordinator roles.

Being involved in our neighborhood association is a great way to keep informed about the concerns in our community and to learn what it takes to find solutions and move things forward. During my time on the board, I have seen democracy in action as people come together to improve the quality of life in our community.

Please contact me if you would also like to include your name on this year’s ballot. Include a brief statement about why you would like to be on the Southeast Neighbors board. Strong neighborhood engagement from people from all walks of life is the key to enriching our community and I encourage you to participate.
