    Endorsements can be genuine or a political game/dance. Results and relationships are what is important.

    What has Ms. Thompson accomplished during her tenure as Executive Director at West Humboldt Park Development Council. What were her successes? How successfully did she engage with the residents, the business community, and community partners? What specifically has she accomplished with the West Humboldt Park Special Service Area (SSA #63) and how did she grow the relationship with the SSA Commission? How has she grown the organizational budget? How has she expanded programming? How has she grown organizational capacity and the staff? How has she deepened relationships with existing partners and developed new relationships with partner organizations?
