  1. The North End/Waterfront is fortunate to have leadership and involvement from someone as committed as Dave has been. I haven’t always agreed with him, but I’ve always respected his dedication to a better North End.

  2. David has rendered exceptional service to the entire North End, both residents and visitors, for over 15 years. He championed thoughtful development that was supportive of the fabric of life that we all enjoy, and worked tirelessly to make sure that projects that benefited individuals at the expense of the neighborhood did not happen. under his leadership, the Zoning Licensing, and Construction Committee became a focal point for bringing these issues to the table. Well-conceived projects were speedily approved, those that would harm the community were identified and frequently modified, with the results being transmitted to the appropriate city offices.

    We will miss David’s steady hand at the gavel of the committee, but we hope that his support of the committee’s activities will continue.

    With great appreciation,
    Forbes Dewey

  3. DAVE, I AM SICK THAT YOU WILL NO LONGER BE GIVING YOUR SERVICES ON THIS
    NEIGHBORHOOD COMMITTEE, BUT I AM HOPING & PRAYING YOU WILL BE LINING UP
    COMMENTS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO MAKE WHILE BEING ON
    THE COMMITTEE. YOU ARE AN OUTSTANDING ADVOCATE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD
    AND I LOOK FORWARD TO ANY BENEFICIAL COMMENTS YOU MAKE REGARDING OUR
    NEIGHBORHOOD. THANKS FOR ALL YOU DEDICATION.

  4. I haven’t known David in his NEWRA position but have had the pleasure of working, with him on
    other Neighborhood projects. He is the real deal. An organized,energetic individual, who used his considerable talent for the good of his North End neighbors. People like Dave move into other challenges.Stay tuned for the next chapter.

  5. Thank you David for you thoughtful & ethical consideration of our North End residents. Although we haven’t said it often enough; we appreciate all your efforts on our behalf! Pidg

  6. Dave, thank you! Besides leading the committee for 10 years, it is obvious you put your heart and soul into it. The neighborhood is all the better as a result of your dedication and caring. You will be missed! Best of Luck in new endeavors!
