• CEO Corner: A five-year retrospective on my time with EDASC

    September 09, 2020
    August marked my fifth anniversary as CEO of EDASC. I know, that went by fast, didn’t it? And while I certainly did not expect to be at home in Anacortes writing this during a pandemic, there is no place I would rather be in the entire country than Skagit County. Besides that, my younger son, Jeremy, just moved here, so you’re getting more Sternlichts! We are all now West Coasters!

    Throughout these five years, I have enjoyed the rewards and challenges of this job while getting to know so many amazing people who make this community as wonderful and special as we know it to be. The work done in Skagit County, and the collaborative and cooperative way in which it happens, could serve as a model for any other community. This is a big part of what makes this job great.

    Hitting this milestone, I am drawn to both look back at what we’ve accomplished, and look ahead to what we plan to work on.
