The Polish Hill Civic Association is excited to announce the results of the PHCA board election. Our new president will be John Rhoades. Valerie Testa will be Vice President, and Kalie Pierce will be 2nd Vice President and Membership Chair.
The six directorships up for election were filled by: Susan Atkinson, Mark Knobil, Catherine McConnell, Myrna Newman, Josiah Parkinson, and Ruth Rizner. All terms are for two years.
Congratulations to all the winners. They will be sworn in at the January 6 community meeting, which will take place at 6:30 p.m. on the lower level of the West Penn Recreation Center.
We are grateful to all the individuals who stepped forward as candidates. A record number of people cared enough to be willing to take on the responsibility and the extensive time commitment of being a PHCA board member. Thanks to all the people who were willing to make this commitment. We hope that all will remain as involved as ever.
This year saw strong participation in the board election. It was very encouraging to see so many residents engaged and interested in the organization and its work in the neighborhood. We hope that this interest and engagement continues. The great benefits to our neighborhood come when residents work together.
