Janis Purins Appointed SLNC Region 7 Representative

At its July 11 Governing Board meeting, the SLNC appointed long-time resident Janis Purins to represent Region 7. Purins will also co-chair the Reservoir Committee with Region 7 Rep Terry Jackson.  Purins stated that he is concerned about shrinkage of affordable housing (and commercial space) and the ensuing loss of cultural and economic diversity, along with the development of the Reservoirs Master Plan, ongoing traffic issues and the condition of sidewalks in Region 7. “I am an advocate of transparency and recognize that adapting to current changes in our community may bring about anxiety and dissent, and therefore strongly believe in active listening,” Purins said.
