I’m Colin Wonnacott, and after having lived in Portland for over a decade, I’m finally interested in getting involved in my neighborhood association. As a lifelong renter, I feel that it is important that renters are represented in our neighborhood association. The presence and views of non-homeowners on concerns that affect the neighborhood is a valuable insight, and having a renter on the board would allow it to further represent and be representative of the people of the Sunnyside neighborhood.
I have lived and worked in Sunnyside for most of the time I have lived in our fair city, and I feel lucky to continue to live here. I’m an avid cyclist and gardener, a former chef, and I enjoy cooking for the Hard Times Supper at Sunnyside Community House every Wednesday. Please consider me to represent you on the board of the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association!
Please join us on May 9th, 7pm – 9pm at SE Uplift for our annual Election and Potluck, where we will also be presenting a minor revision to the SNA Bylaws to the general membership for approval. Our goal is to increase participation among second- and third- shifters (i.e. those with non-traditional work hours) in our neighborhood by making our meeting schedule a little more flexible.
