Citizen appointments

I recognize that it has been too long since I posted here. I have found that I can either do, or I can write, but I have difficulty balancing both. For the past several months, in addition to my day job and my work as lead writer for the Virginia Film Festival, I have enjoyed serving on the City Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee. I strongly feel the responsibility as a citizen to contribute my time and interest to topics that affect our community, and I have a particular interest in those areas that impact children and families. So I was particularly pleased last week to receive a letter from Mayor Dave Norris that I have now also been appointed to the Charlottesville/Albemarle Commission on Children and Families. Their next meeting is November 5th and I look forward to writing about my impressions in this space.
