Oct 2000 - Apr 2002
Mainstreet Hobbs, Inc
I brought community leaders together to begin the process of revitalizing the historic downtown area.What began as empty buildings and very few shoppers became an area of festivals and promotions and eventually became the “Heart of the City” that we laid groundwork for during my tenure.My duties included writing grant proposals, promoting the downtown area, establishing a newsletter and website, coordinating a volunteer board of directors and active committees, and gaining the confidence of downtown merchants and community leaders who had given up hope for that area of town.
