Two board positions are up for election this year: Tiffany Moore, current President and Bill Kalahurka, Director. Current nominations include Tiffany Moore (running for reelection), Steve Kidwell, and David Pucci. We will also be taking nominations from the floor at the Annual Meeting on Tuesday, November 17th.

Tiffany has served twice as Vice President and as President since 2013. Her work as board member includes specific efforts to formalize neighborhood contracting, develop a Capital Improvements Program, and address some of the neighborhood’s most troubled properties.
