“I had the distinct pleasure of being one of 50 plus stakeholders interviewed by David Galligan in his capacity as the Facilitator of the District 2021-2023 Artistic Strategic Plan.
I applaud David’s successful efforts to bring unvarnished views of the community, artistic stakeholders, and Government Representatives to the attention of Agency Leadership.
In my official capacity, and as a lover of the Arts, Humanities, and Entertainment, I exercise due diligence and have a responsibility to move the dial forward and ensure the District’s creative community is diverse, vibrant, inclusive, and equitable.
David’s passion and commitment to his work was evident based on the honest, open, and transparent final product he produced with the 2021-2023 Artistic Strategic Plan.
David knows candor, and his character and principles are built on a foundation of TRUTH!”
