As we enter 2015, I would like to share some accomplishments of the past year and thank the many wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure of working with and for in 2014.
My second year as Supervisor of the Fifth District was again a year of learning, working, and sharing. I am honored to represent the Fifth District and continue to grow in my appreciation of the talents, energy, and diversity of Fifth District residents.
In 2014, our community felt the passing of several incredible community leaders who made such a difference in our lives.
Annette Marcum, founder of Valley Churches United Missions, died in January after battling lung disease for several years.
Roger Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mount Hermon Christian Camps and Conference Center, went to his heavenly home in September.
Bob Lee, Santa Cruz County District Attorney, died in October after a battle with cancer.
Bill Burton, longtime advocate of the Felton Covered Bridge, and San Lorenzo Valley’s 2013 Man of the Year, passed away in April.
