What is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?

VG: Becoming a father to an amazing little girl.

What does a typical day look like for you?

VG: There is no typical day. The only constant is meetings - but they are with a wide and diverse segment of our community. One day it is working with our members of the school district on an initiative they are pushing forward and the next day it could be talking with a company about a permit issue.
 
 
What three words would you use to describe your role?
 
VG: Community, Engagement, Advocate

What is your motto or personal mantra?

This too shall pass.

"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius. Commander of the Armies of the North. General of the Felix Legions. Loyal servant to the true Emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife – and I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." - Gladiator (2000)
