“I recently asked Jamie Montgomery to be Chairperson of the potential Capital Campaign. If you know Jamie, what follows may be familiar to you. If you don’t, I hope you find it interesting and it helps you understand why I think he’s such a good choice. Jamie brings energy, experience and excitement to this initiative. I look forward to working alongside him.”
