Addressing the needs of people in the community and around the world is pertinent to the quality of life for everyone. I believe that it is important to reach out, to touch others and provide resources and services to those in need.
Food insecurity, poverty and homelessness are pervasive in communities all over the nation. The impoverished community encompasses people from all walks of life and represents faces that we see everyday.

The business community is the lifeblood of our community and the architect of a thriving economy. Advocating business opportunities for everyone is essential to continued growth and economic vitality.
