We are excited to have Kevin on the board. Kevin works in the City Attorney's Office and he brings great new energy and enthusiasm to the group. He is an avid runner and would like to bring the San Jose Rock and Roll Half Marathon this year's list of SJMA events. He also has started a conversation around a Kindness Project. More details to come on that worthwhile front!
You may have noticed that long-time board member, Leslie Hollenbeck, was missing from this year's board slate. Leslie was our Retiree Representative. We wish her a fond farewell.
Another long-time board member, Dan Tong, resigned from our board this year. Dan was a retiree from the Attorney's Office. He was instrumental in the development of SJMA. He was an active board member, always willing to help with fun and positive energy that we will sorely miss. Best of luck to Dan in his continued travel adventures with his family. He is living the life!
