Change of the Guard at the Midtown Ponce Security Alliance
Peggy Denby and Don Jones, who were members of the founding board of MPSA, recently retired from MPSA after 12 years of service to the Midtown community.
Two key board members have recently retired from the Midtown Ponce Security Alliance (MPSA) board. Peggy Denby and Don Jones, who were members of the founding board of MPSA, recently retired from MPSA after 12 years of service to the Midtown community.
Both Peggy and Don were instrumental in the development of the MPSA in 2003 and with it, the improved public safety conditions we continue to enjoy in Midtown. Peggy served as President from 2003 until her retirement this year, and Don served as treasurer since 2003. We will forever be grateful for their role in a safer Midtown for all of us.
Don and Peggy have been planning their retirement for quite some time. They will now spend their time traveling the world in their RV. They are about to embark on a trip lasting several months to the New England states, the Maritime provinces, and other places in the US and Canada. We will sorely miss them, but will forever be grateful for their service to the Midtown community, as well as for the ample time they provided the board for transition.
Last week we officially passed the torch to Bill Nickles, who is now the President of the MPSA. Steve Gower, the last remaining founding member of the MPSA board, will continue as Vice President and manage the website, research, and the watchlist. Ed Seemann has fully transitioned into the treasurer's role over the last few months. Other of your neighbors serving on the MPSA board are Brad Edmonds, Chandra Stephens-Albright, Ted Ghiz, and Joe Vivona. They will focus primarily on membership development. Michael Floyd will continue his advisory role on the MPSA board.
In just a few days, on June 1st, we will launch our 12th year of Patrol operations (we launched the patrol on June 1st, 2003). We have come a very long way in all these years (thank you again Don & Peggy), but we still have a good bit of work to do in optimizing public safety in Midtown. As always, we appreciate your ongoing support and look forward to bringing our beautiful neighborhood to even greater heights because of it.
