David Carmany - City Manager 
Robin Hanson Community Stakeholder - From our earliest conversations, I was struck by Susan's positivity, enthusiasm, & belief in the goodness of others. I've always been impressed with her earnestness in the face of the agendas and machinations of those around her.She believes emphatically in the possibility that any conflict can be resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. She's not only a trained mediator, she IS a mediator by her essential nature. Susan has the invaluable ability to make connections: between people, concepts, & ideas. She's the consummate networker in the most positive way possible. That combined with her endless contacts from all walks of life,she represents a bottomless resource. I appreciate that Susan is a self made person in all respects.  She wastes zero time whining or blaming. Susan is self reliant and the hardest worker you will ever find. Get to know her, and you will understand that her vision is not that of the small minded or venal, or provincial. Her vision is that of the worldly, well traveled, well lived. Go ahead, expect big ideas, big concepts, big outcomes from Susan. You will not be disappointed.
