Let's reconnect and rediscover the Gresham community
For over 30 years as a local businesswoman, and community leader; I have seen Gresham grow into a wonderfully diverse and connected city. Over the last few years it seems like communities across America, including Gresham, have become less connected because of the pandemic.
Since I was elected to the Gresham City Council in 2020, I have been looking for avenues, channels and forums to inform, engage and connect further with our amazing community.
In so many ways our world has changed since the beginning of the pandemic, but at least one thing remains: the desire and want, as humans, to connect and be a part of something.
During my campaign, and the months since, I have heard from countless community members that feel out-of-the-know or unsure what they should know.
So, we are going old-fashioned with a goal to frequently provide a touch point for you to ask questions, hear important updates, and react to current and relevant developments in our community.
I will use this brief snippet to talk about the history of Gresham, news with the city government of Gresham, and the city at large.
As an example, did you know that Gresham has not one, not two, but three, yes three, historic cemeteries clustered together?
These cemeteries serve as not only a final resting place for those who came before us; but they serve as a constant reminder of the depth of history, stories, and historical significance Gresham plays in the American Story.
