I’m a retired teacher, mother of 4 adult children, grandmother of 8, and married for 50 years to my husband, John. We moved to Delaware 25 years ago, but sadly knew nothing about Arden’s existence, so settled elsewhere. Soon we had several reasons to visit Arden – Ardensingers, Shakespeare Gild performances, children’s activities, the Fair – and from then on my dream was to live in this very special place. And so, when we retired, we found our wonderful home, and after a lot of work on it, moved here about 7 years ago. We love this place and these people and the so much that goes on here, as well as the heritage and history of its founding.
Several times over the last few years I have had opportunity to see the Registration Committee at work when they needed extra hands for specific tasks. I have been most impressed by the serious approach to the many details important to maintain the integrity of our Arden electoral system and its unusual structure. I am especially intrigued by the Hare Proportional system used to give wide input into choosing elected committees and chairpersons. As a bit of an OCD person myself, I believe I could work well with this committee and would greatly enjoy being on this dedicated and important team.
