Peggy Grande's New Book on President Reagan

Thank you to the Troy Public Library for hosting Peggy Grande at their "An Evening with the Author" series on March 27. Grande, President Ronald Reagan’s executive assistant from 1989–1999, spoke on her new book The President Will See You Now: My Stories and Lessons from Ronald Reagan’s Final Years. Mary Ellyn and I appreciated the opportunity to hear Peggy's speech and also to purchase a copy of her book. Click here for more information on Peggy and her book.

There were two items on the agenda:
  • A variance for 2830 Lanergan (to build a new house). The ZBA voted to approve the variance. I voted yes on the motion to approve.

  • A variance for vacant land adjacent to and north of 600 Wilshire (to construct a new hotel). The ZBA voted to deny the variance. I voted yes on the motion to deny.
