First, there is my Chamber family. They truly make my job look easy, and are so dedicated to this organization and to Hollywood. And then, there is my personal family. My wife Audrey and son Seth are here with us. My daughter Lauren is a dedicated student taking health at summer school and couldn’t get away. I do want to thank them for allowing me to work the long hours necessary to do this job. I believe that if you accept any assignment, you must give it your all, and that is what it has taken to represent the Chamber properly. I’m proud of what we have accomplished and I thank my family for being so supportive.”
