East Summit Association Elects New Officers
Organization's founder and only president steps down.
The East Summit Association held its second re-organization meeting at the Oakes Center on Morris Avenue on Sunday. During the meeting, members voted on new officers in the wake of Bob Sheehan, ESA's founder as well as first and only president, stepping down.
Aton Evers, formerly ESA's vice-president, was voted in as president, Louis P. DeSocio was made vice-president, and John DeSocio and Julie Stymacks kept their previous positions of treasurer and secretary, respectively. Sheehan will stay involved with the group as an advisor.
"It is a big job to follow in his footsteps, because he's always done a fantastic job," Evers said of his predecessor.
Current objectives of the ESA were briefly discussed, including the restoration of Briant Park, non-residents attending area schools, and housing issues such as overcrowding and stacking.
"East Summit has always had a 'name tag' over it, and we want to eliminate that name tag and just be another part of town," Evers said.
Stymacks highlighted the ESA's most recent accomplishment: getting a road block installed to stop drivers from making the dangerous right turn from Park Avenue onto Broad Street, at the corner by Cook's Appliances.
The East Summit Association will have an open meeting to discuss all of their current issues in the coming months.
