"As a newcomer to Norwalk, I have found the Chamber to be the best place to meet people. As a City department head, I value the Chamber colleagues I have found in the private sector, as well as members in the non-profit world who share the same customer base as the library. I do my job for the City better because of my involvement with the Chamber—and have fun doing it!"
