“Kathy comes to us at an exciting time in the evolution of Alameda’s downtown,” said Otto Wright, President of the Downtown Association. “With an extraordinary background that will contribute to the continued growth of our district, she has a keen understanding of business associations and the ability to help us create and execute our long-term strategic plan and vision.”
