Dr. Herman A. Jones, Jr.

Director and Advisory Board Liaison

Allegheny Regional Asset District

One Smithfield Street, Suite 310

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222 -2221

 

Dear Dr. Jones:

 

I am writing to request an appointment to the Advisory Board of the Allegheny Regional Asset District. As you suggested, I have compiled an updated Personal Resume, which is enclosed for your review.

 

As you may know, I attend most meetings sponsored by the Allegheny Regional Asset District, particularly meetings of the Board of Directors and Advisory Board. Hence, I am aware of most of the issues the District and Boards must consider.

 

During the latter half of the 1990s, as a Life Trustee of the Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall (a recipient of District funds since the Districtís inception in 1995), I have been intimately involved in the issues regarding the funding and operation of public libraries in Allegheny County.

 

During the 1980s and early 1990s, I was employed with The Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science (a.k.a. Buhl Science Center). With nearly ten years of experience with this museum, I am also intimately aware of the operation of a major museum. This institutionís successor, The Carnegie Science Center, has also been a recipient of District funds since the Districtís inception in 1995.

 

With many years of experience in the financing and operation of a public library and a public museum, I am uniquely qualified to serve on the Advisory Board of the Allegheny Regional Asset District. I am available, at your convenience, for additional conversations on these matters.

 

I will look forward to consideration of my request, by the Board of Directors of the Allegheny Regional Asset District.

 

Sincerely yours,

 

 

 

Glenn A. Walsh
