Tremont West Annual Meeting

  On Thursday, May 19th, Tremont West membership gathered at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church to break bread, celebrate and remember the past year as well as elect new board directors and board president.
  It was a special evening where we got to hear from special guests including an introduction to the new Ward 3 Councilman, Kerry McCormack and County Councilwoman, Yvonne Conwell.  Members also heard from out-going Board President Lynn McLaughlin Murray and Tremont West Executive Director, Cory Riordan.  Each year at the Annual Membership Meeting, Tremont West gives awards.  New to this year’s award is the Sammy Catania Spotlight Award, named in honor of Tremont West’s Physical Development Director who passed away suddenly at the end of 2015.  This year’s recipients are:
Gail Long Lifetime Achievement Award- Joe Cimperman (Former Ward 3 Councilman)
Sammy Catania Spotlight Award- MCM Company Inc. (Developer of Our Lady of Mercy)
Resident of the Year Award- Margy Judd and Amo Judd (Tremont Trash Patrol)
Keith Sulzer Community Partner of the Year Award- Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (Saving the South Branch Library)
  During the months leading up to the Annual Membership Meeting candidates visit Tremont Block Clubs to share their reasons why they are interested in volunteering for the Board of Directors.  This year the membership voted in a new Board President and new Directors serving 3 and 2 year terms:
Ann Marie Riley, Board President - 124 votes
Kate Carden, Director - 120 votes
Rich Sosenko, Director - 113 votes
Lynn McLaughlin Murray, Director - 104 votes
Jaimie Declet, Director - 101 votes
Dan Cotter, Director - 98 votes
Vic Selig, Director - 93 votes
Josh Rosen, Director - 87 votes
  Thanks to candidates Zora Eizember (71 votes) and Guy Templeton Black (13 votes) for taking the time to run for the Tremont West Board of Directors.
  Thanks to all of the cadidates who ran for this year’s Tremont West Board of Directors and to all who took time out of their busy schedule to attend the Annual Membership Meeting to vote!
  In concluding the meeting, Cory Riordan thanked out-going board members for their years of service.  We say thanks to Hansal Patel, who served as our Board Treasurer, Cynthia Chiplis who served on many board committees including the Safety Committee and Arts Committee, and Athena Gallo who assisted with our very successful inaugural Celebrate Tremont fundraiser.
  Tremont West staff would like to send a big thank you to Lynn McLaughlin Murray for serving as the President of the Tremont West Board for the past two years!  We are happy to see you stay on as a Director, but wanted to make a special note for the time and commitment you had made during your tenure as Board President.
