I joined the board for two reasons. First, it has been more than a decade since the 2010 floods devastated the middle TN region and we need to continue the work of making our infrastructure and communities more resilience from future disasters. Second, Dickson is an amazing place that is growing and will continue to serve as an important component of this region, and I want to make sure it is represented in this important organization.
