DAPC Chairman Todd Strickland, at a special meeting last week to recap the volunteer group’s successes, said that was one of his greatest regrets.
“Perhaps I could’ve done a better job of touting our successes,” Strickland said just before authority members presented information on its accomplishments, much of it occurring behind the scenes and without fanfare. Read More»
