I have learned so many things already throughout my time here and have met so many wonderful people. I am so excited to begin this new journey and explore innovative ways to market the LGA to the best of my abilities. I have numerous plans set in place for upcoming years to not only elevate the LGA but also strengthen the bond with our members across the state. I can’t wait to see everything unfold.”
