The EaDo Management District exists to promote, develop, encourage and maintain employment, commerce, transportation, housing, tourism, recreation, arts, entertainment, economic development, safety and the public welfare within EaDo boundaries.
That’s a tall order, and to make this happen, a dedicated group of civic and local business leaders participate in a volunteer basis as part of the district’s Board of Directors. Working with city and country officials and local business owners, these board members are committed to enhancing life in the EaDo District.
In an effort to help you get to know who’s working to help you, we’re starting a series to highlight individual board members on the site. This month we’re happy to introduce Jeremy Conner, Shipping/Warehouse Manager at Oak Farms Dairy.
