On Nov. 21, the Longfellow Community Council (LCC) elected a new president and vice president to its Board of Directors. Andrew Johnson, the former LCC president, won the Ward 12 City Council election in November, leaving a vacancy in the organization. Eric Day, LCC’s current vice president, was unanimously elected by the LCC board to serve as the new president. Christine Marlo, also a currently serving board member, was then unanimously elected to fill the open vice president position.
Eric Day joined the LCC board in April of 2012. He has been a resident of the Longfellow neighborhood since 2009 and runs a law office on East Lake Street specializing in immigration, small business and family law. Eric has been actively involved with LCC committees, including the River Gorge and Executive Committees, for the past two years and he is a dedicated and active community volunteer who has strengthened the board’s ability to review and amend organizational policy.
Christine Marlo joined the LCC board in April of 2010. She has previously served as the LCC board vice president and is the longest serving member of the Advancement Committee. She is a dedicated volunteer who has focused her attention on increasing LCC’s ability to raise funding within the community to assure our sustainability. Christine was also a strong supporter and fundraiser for the Falls 4 All Universal Access Playground that broke ground at Wabun Park this summer.
Both Eric and Christine provide LCC with the resolute commitment and continuity that has been key to our success.
