Time to cast your vote for LGNA board members
Call for additional Board nominations
It is time to re-elect volunteer LGNA Board members, even if we still won’t have an in-person member meeting this May due to COVID-19. We are also seeking new individuals who want to serve the neighborhood through Board participation.
Volunteers serving our community
The LGNA Board is completely volunteer led with directors serving three-year terms to represent neighborhood interests with regard to local business zoning and development, parking issues, interacting with City officials and building community connection. The Board also hosts events such as National Night Out and organizes donation efforts to support our local schools, fire fighters and police officers.
LGNA has served local residents since the early 1980s when a group of dedicated neighbors recognized a need to preserve and improve the quality of life in Lower Greenville. The Association also hosts a website and Facebook page and provides the printed and online newsletter to keep neighbors informed. We also help support our Extended Neighborhood Patrol program to increase safety and reduce crime in the neighborhood.
Time to vote
Two Board positions are up for re-election this year. While every resident of Lower Greenville (from Ross to Mockingbird and Skillman to Greenville) is a member of LGNA, dues-paying households also enjoy the right to vote. If you haven’t already, we urge you to join LGNA for just $20 per year (only $5 for residents 65 and older).
Not sure if you are a voting member with up-to-date dues? Contact email@example.com or pay your dues online at lgna.net. It’s also possible to mail your dues to PO Box 720067, Dallas TX 75372 if you include your full name, address and contact information. The May election will be conducted electronically, but anyone preferring a paper ballot to vote may email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and a ballot will be mailed to you.
Up for re-election are:
Vanderbilt resident Patricia Carr joined the LGNA Board in 2003 and has held the positions of President, Treasurer, Corresponding Secretary, and former writer/editor of the LGNA Newsletter. Pat has been an active and highly knowledgeable voice at City Hall for the good of our Lower Greenville neighborhood.
Jean McAulay has lived on Belmont for seven years and has served on the Board since 2017. You might catch her picking up trash as she walks her dog and networks with Lower Greenville area businesses, engaging them in improving the appearance of our business district. She gives of her time and expertise in writing and producing the LGNA Newsletter.
