PRIDE INTRODUCES NEW CO-CHAIRS
San Diego LGBT Pride is pleased to announce the election of new Co-Chairs, Tiffany Gonzalez and Romer De Los Santos. Tiffany, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, has served the board most recently as chair of the board development committee. Romer comes with a long history of board service and project management experience. The board has also elected new secretary, Jaime Carrillo, a non-profit management leader and advocate for access to healthcare.
“This entire executive team is very optimistic and excited about the future of Pride and what the organization will be able to do, moving forward, for the community. We’re just very thankful for the opportunity we’ve been given”, stated Co-Chair Tiffany Gonzalez.
As Pride welcomes the new leadership, the organization is also bidding farewell to Treasurer Dion Brown as well as long-time board director and previous Co-Chair, Joseph Mayer, who has retired from board service. Having served Pride in various capacities for over 20 years and holding positions of Treasurer and Co-Chair in that time, Joe has set a high standard for board service.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, the staff, and our community, we would like to sincerely thank Joe Mayer for his long and faithful service to Pride and the community. His passion and dedication won’t soon be forgotten, and we wish him all the best as he enjoys his retirement”, remarked Co-Chair Romer De Los Santos.
