For the past 10 months, I have had the privilege to serve as president of the Greater Towson Council of Community Associations.
During my tenure, we have achieved many victories and suffered a few defeats, but to the best of our abilities we have represented the interests of our Towson neighbors.
During the past few years, GTCCA has worked closely with our elected officials, as well as with such partners as the Towson Chamber of Commerce, Towson University and Goucher College. Although at times sides may disagree, we have established a system to ensure that we communicate with one another.
That being said, I would like to address a few misperceptions that continue to overshadow the progress we have achieved.
First, our organization works very closely with the business community and Towson chamber to promote the revitalization of downtown Towson.
Second, GTCCA has an excellent relationship with TU and Goucher. We are in constant communication with each administration. And, although we have been fortunate to work with interim president Dr. Marcia Welsh, who is doing a fabulous job building off the successes Dr. Robert Caret established before his departure, we are looking forward to working with incoming TU president, Dr. Maravene Loeschke.
Finally, GTCCA has worked closely with Councilman David Marks and other elected officials on a variety of issues this year, including redistricting.
GTCCA has enjoyed working with Councilman Marks, and is eager to continue our partnership.
Our goal for GTCCA is to promote the place we call home while working to preserve the quality and sustainably of our wonderful neighborhoods.
We look forward to working with residents and community groups.
