Island Talkback: Judi Friedman carries the torch in West Alameda
By Judi Friedman
As many of you know, the West Alameda Business Association (WABA) laid off its executive director, Kathy Moehring, effective February 15. This action was taken due to current and anticipated reduction in revenue.
I am writing to introduce myself and to assure you that the association continues to support and advocate for local business on Webster Street and in West Alameda.
I have been here at WABA for the last four and a half years as the office manager and event coordinator. Now, with the support of the WABA board, I will also act as your point of contact whenever you need assistance. The office is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Our special community events will continue:
• Concerts at the Cove will be June 10, July 8 and August 12
• Webster Street Jam will be September 10-11
• Halloween will take place on October 31
• Webster Wine Walk is on May 19 and October 6
• Santa on Webster will be on December 10
We are here to work with you and address any questions or concerns you may have. Feel free to contact me, or any of the WABA board members listed below:
