Judith Norval
Describe why you would like to serve on the Board of Directors and any other relevant information. The first 150 words will be printed in the voting information at the Town Hall meeting. Attach additional pages as necessary.

As a participant of the Strategic Planning Committee since the inception, I wish to see the plans and visions of that process implemented. I am also a member of the building committee for the planning and construction of a new community center, with intentions to remain involved in the process. I have served as president of the Hoodland Women's Club and am currently chair of the board of directors of the Hoodland Senior Center.

Thank-you.

We've laid the ground work and made good progress. I believe in the Villages process and want to continue guiding the future of our community.

It has been a true privilege for me to serve on the Board of Directors of the Villages at Mt. Hood. As the current chair, the experiences have helped me gain insight into the variety of perspectives, interests, and needs in our local community.

For over forty years, I have lived and worked in our area. I understand the needs of our families and businesses-but I have also seen how our community can come together to make things better for all of us. I believe the Villages at Mt. Hood is an effective vehicle for these improvements.

As we continue to stretch and grow as a Board, we are clarifying our role, vision, and opportunities to improve our community. I would very much like to stay involved in this process and I ask for your continued support as I seek to be re-elected to a three-year term. Thank you again and please stay involved!

"I'm keeping you in the driver's seat!" Local citizens managing the community through the Town Hall process is a remarkable example of pure, grass roots democracy. My pledge is to work hard as your advocate on the Villages board. I believe in moving projects and ideas to the Town Hall …for you to decide. I advocate working with the Board of County Commissioners for positive change…change that reflects the mountain character of this community. I am not in a leadership position for any Supported Activities, so I have no known conflicts of interest. I work for you. I was the past Chair of the Villages at Mt. Hood Board. I hold a BA degree in business from the University of Maryland. I retired from the Army in 2001 after 20 years of active federal service. I am a local small business owner. I sit on several community/regional boards (festival and tourism)

All Town Hall meetings are open to the public but only residents, property owners, or business owners may vote. They must be announced with an agenda and any materials, on the web site and at the library at least 7 calendar days prior to the day such meeting is to be held.
