Roma Dawson is the newest member of the San Jose Parks Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
Ms Dawson is a former San Jose City Council Aide to past Council members, including: Tom McEnery, Charlotte Powers, Cindy Chavez and Sam Liccardo (currently Mayor). She joins the San Jose Parks Foundation Board of Trustees, having been elected at the May meeting.
Roma Dawson brings excellent experience to help the foundation increase parks funding, event planning and development work. Roma believes strongly that all San Jose residents will have the opportunity to enjoy the same love of the outdoors that she did.
San Jose’s Department of Parks Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) endured an almost 50% funding cutback during San Jose’s lean budget years. Roma will join the board at the pivotal time when small budget increases are projected and Park funding can start being restored.
The San Jose Parks Foundation is a community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for San Jose's parks and trails and the programs within them, by empowering residents and volunteers and securing private donations.
