- 2013-2014 Chair of the Board for the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce. “I’m not sure how many Board Chairs declare a “slogan” for their term, but as I pondered what I wanted to accomplish during my term, I could not help but focus on the idea of “doing business locally”. In our Chamber we have the breadth and depth of businesses in almost every category, and the ability to utilize these resources whenever possible before going outside the Chamber to find the services and products we need to run our respective businesses. To be honest, I consider all of Solano County to be local, and if we want to maintain a healthy local business economy, it is my strong belief that we should look to our Chamber and our County first, and only then reach outside if we are unable to meet our needs here. Call your Chamber; ask which members might provide the services you are looking for. You might be surprised at how deep the local resources are."
