| Having volunteered to attend the Key Largo Wastewater Management District Board Meetings for the Tavernier Community Association, I have been impressed by the actions of the Board and Staff over this past year. I’ve decided to join in the effort to meet the State’s costly mandate. I believe my involvement in local community affairs for over a decade have provided me with the life experiences, curiosity, and recognition of the importance the community plays in the effort of meeting the 2010.5 deadline. Adding that with common sense completes my qualifications for being an independent and dependable Board Member.|
