As FCP's new executive director, I am thrilled and honored to be charged with fostering a thriving business community. I have already fallen in love with this place - which surely comes as no surprise to you. You already know what a warm, welcoming, and wonderful town you call home. Thank you for extending your warm welcome to me.
I am drawn to small towns - both professionally, from an economic and community development perspective, and on a personal level. I have been privileged to be part of successful transformations and have also visited hundreds of great towns across our country. After several weeks of meeting with stakeholders, walking these beautiful streets, shopping in great stores, dining at amazing restaurants, and enjoying nights at The Filling Station and the Car Show, there is no doubt in my mind that Flemington has the right stuff to be among the best towns of its kind in the region - if not the entire country.
It is also my pleasure to announce that our new branding campaign, ExploreFlemington, is live! We'll be using billboards, social media, our new web site, and more in a cohesive marketing effort to tell our story to wider and targeted audiences. A HUGE thanks go to my predecessor, Judy Goodwin, for her leadership in making this exciting campaign a reality.
If we have not met already, I hope to do so soon - perhaps at Salsa Night this Saturday, the 15th. Ultimately, I hope to meet every one of you, and hear about your concerns, ideas, hopes, and dreams for Flemington. You are also always welcome to stop by our offices to say hello; we're on the second floor of the Large Building at 119 Main Street.
I look forward to seeing you around town!
