My name is Ethan Perry and I am honored to be the new President of the North Avondale Neighborhood Association. Thanks to Heather Herr for her service last year and for helping me get up to speed in this new role. I love living in this community and I am looking forward to representing our historic, diverse neighborhood over the next year.
Two Summers ago I attended a conference in Atlanta and heard their Mayor, Kasim Reed, speak about the power of people to make change in the cities where they live. He spoke about the fact that our State and Federal governments move slowly, so if you want to see change happen quickly, you need to get involved in your city. His words started me on a journey to become more engaged with my community and eventually to NANA and the task before me.
My number one goal as President is to increase engagement by the residents of North Avondale. The more people we have working together, the more we can accomplish! In that spirit, I created an email address where you can reach out with ideas or opportunities to get involved. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or just stop me and say “Hi” when you see me walking my dog Thor!
