Below is the President’s Message:

By Scott Guirlinger, President

As many of you are probably aware, Jim English stepped down as president of our civic league last month after many, many years at the helm. He saw Wards Corner through a transitional period and kept pressure on city hall to ensure that they heard our voice and delivered on their promises. Without a doubt, he always had (and still has) our neighborhood’s best interests at heart. On behalf of the entire neighborhood, I would like to thank Jim for his service. He will remain on our board as immediate past president.

For those who have not met me, my name is Scott Guirlinger and I am your new civic league president. I have lived in Wards Corner since 2009 and have been active with the civic league since 2013. My personal focus for our neighborhood this year centers on how to combat crime, how to beautify our neighborhood, and how to make our communication channels more effective and more efficient. But more important than what I want for this civic league is what you the residents want. I very much want to hear from you, so please share your thoughts, suggestions, and concerns with me and the other board members at our upcoming meetings, via email, phone, or NextDoor, or just out around the neighborhood!

Thanks, Scott
