Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: Mary Rose is a thoughtful leader in our state who balances care for community, equity and the environment. She has been instrumental in the Community Rebuilding Fund (CRF) that provides resources for communities recovering from the 2020 wildfires. She is an amazing listener and a gentle question asker that helps teams get to better places! So grateful for Mary Rose’s contributions to the CRF that supports all of Oregon, but primarily our rural places.
