“Westbury has recently been annexed into the Brays Oaks Management District, so I am honored to serve as an ambassador from the Westbury area on the board. Since the management district has been an immediate neighbor to the Westbury Super Neighborhood, I have worked with them on many common interests in the past. It is exciting to join the board in time to participate in the development of the district Service Plan for 2013
