BOARD CANDIDATE STATEMENTS ARE BELOW:
I am interested in serving on the board of Brattleboro Community Television. I very much enjoyed my previous service on the board and especially getting to know the staff and board members. I’ve had a 30-year career in public relations, publishing, marketing and television and continue this work to today. I also serve on the Inner Fire board, which is a proactive, healing community in Brookline, VT offering a choice for adults to recover from debilitating and traumatic life challenges without the use of mind altering, psychotropic medications. And I serve as citizen’s commissioner for tourism at Windham Regional Commission. Recently, I’ve begun to use video to help promote various projects and would love to learn more. I believe my background and experience, and history with BCTV, would make a valuable contribution to BCTV. I’m particularly interested in helping to explore new opportunities and community engagement for BCTV.
I am interested in joining the BCTV Board. To give you some background history: I was the General Manager at The Auto Mall in Brattleboro for over 7 years and previous to that I was in the car business in all capacities for approximately 20+ years. I not only have a strong background in business but also in computers and technology. I currently am the Station Manager/Station Engineer for WTSA Radio and have partnered with Kelli Corbeil in running the Four Seasons Media Company. I have a strong sense of community and feel that WTSA and BCTV are similar in our missions to serve our communities. Like BCTV we are always looking to do more programming that directly benefits the people in our area at WTSA. I look forward to learning more about BCTV and helping to service our area even better.
As a lifelong print and broadcast journalist who's made a home in Brattleboro, Vermont, I am delighted to be nominated for one of the open seats on the BCTV board. I know our community has a lot of talented people in it and I am honored to be among those asked to join the BCTV family. In recent years, I've been lucky enough to get to know and work with many of the current and former BCTV board members. I consider them colleagues, friends and wonderful neighbors. I look forward to learning, to sharing ideas and insights, and to undertaking initiatives that will allow BCTV to continue to broaden its impact and grow. Thanks so much for considering my candidacy.
