Joanna Crispe
“I moved to 302 Eastern Parkway two years ago, and have really enjoyed getting to know my neighbors through my involvement with CHCA. I participated in the planning and facilitation of the two Town Hall meetings last spring, and have been attending both CHCA and workgroup/committee meetings regularly since then. My professional background is in nonprofit organizational capacity building, so I naturally tend to take on more process focused roles, and could potentially serve as secretary or treasurer if elected to the Board. I am interested in community engagement and outreach, and how CHCA collaborates with other organizations working locally. I am motivated to join the CHCA Board for the opportunity to learn from the experienced and longstanding community leaders involved, continue to develop relationships within and contribute to this community which I have grown to love and think of as home.”

Frank Esquilin
“I have lived in the community for 28 years and have been involved in a number of different things with Crow Hill. I would like to run for the board because I think it’s time for a change. I am particularly interested in accountability and transparency in Crow Hill.”

Constance Nugent Miller
“I became active with Crow Hill after seeing my neighborhood drastically changing. I participated in outreach for all the town hall meetings. What motivated me to run for a board position was because I wanted a broader view of opinions and ideas to be brought to the table for discussion. I also wanted to incorporate a larger cross section of the community to volunteer and participate in building our new community. My promise to my community is one of openness and willingness to work with all groups of people. My slogan is: Diversity, Collaboration & Community.”

Josh Thompson
“My time living among the Crow Hill community has been relatively short, but I recognized that this was a special neighborhood almost immediately. I enjoy what it is today, but it is the rich history that gives it such a unique character. As a member of the Crow Hill Community Association Board, I want to help build on the accomplishments of those who worked tirelessly before me and help make this a neighborhood in which everyone feels comfortable.”
