The highlight of the ECA Annual Dinner was an impassioned "sermon" by Elizabeth's own Rep. Dan Clodfelter on the importance of the Elizabeth Area Plan. I wish I had recorded it! The message was clear: If you think the details of the Area Plan are unimportant or if you think the details can be easily worked out -- or if you think the quality of our neighborhood is not in jeopardy -- you are mistaken. If and when an Elizabeth Area Plan is approved, it will have a profound affect on just about every parcel in the 'hood. We can't afford to settle for anything less than the best. Brother Dan was inspiring.
In other business, Monte Ritchey was elected ECA president and Beth Haenni was elected vice-president. Oh, and the food was pretty good too.
