All to be achieved by greater community participation, social engagement, and alliances with other organizations.
Trustee – Maureen Brown
I have lived in Montlake for the past 22 years (at the corner of 23rd Ave E and Boyer). I am a family medicine physician (a colleague of Carol Cordy), teaching at the Swedish Family Medicine Residency Program and working at the Downtown Public Health Clinic. My professional interests include healthcare for homeless and other marginalized populations, as well as refugee and asylee health. I have worked on the Health Care for the Homeless Planning Council, and now its Community Advisory Group, for the past 20 years. My interests outside of work include hiking, birding, gardening and photography.
Trustee – Chris Cumming
Chris has been a Montlake resident since 2013. Chris joined the board to serve Montlake and help protect what is special about the neighborhood while working to make sure inevitable changes are positive. Chris is an active runner and cyclist who is familiar with pedestrian safety and bicycle and traffic issues.
Trustee – Danny Greco
Danny and his wife moved to Montlake from Green Lake in the summer of 2015. Being involved in real estate, Montlake always appealed to Danny because of its central location and quick access to freeways and other arterials. Of course, the adorable neighborhoods and houses oozing with character didn’t go unnoticed. Not to mention being an avid UW supporter, walking to and from home games is a huge plus! What they’ve learned to love most about Montlake in their time as residents is the community bonding and annual events including the Turkey Trot and yard sale.
