Aware of the fact that communities such as GVR don’t just happen, Ed wanted to do his part to help maintain the wonderful living environment surrounding us here in the Ranch. “I wanted to be one of those who were willing to spend personal time to make it happen,” he said. He goes on to say, “When I exit the 215 onto Green Valley Parkway and reach the intersection at Paseo Verde, I know I’m entering a special place. You don’t find it anywhere else. You sense the tranquility and uniqueness that I feel separates us from the [other communities]. Ed is committed to working side-by-side with his fellow board members in order to keep our neighborhood a safe, well-maintained, amenity-rich place to live. The Sutter’s enjoy the reaction of their national and international guests when they first experience GVR. “They are always in awe of statuesque palm trees, the manicured landscape, the cleanliness of our streets, and the wide variety of activities to do within GVR.” As a result, we are reminded of HOW LUCKY WE ARE TO LIVE IN SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PLACE.” Ed wants to assure this doesn’t change.
Ed is admired for his positive attitude and his willingness to do whatever is asked of him. He never fails to applaud the efforts of others.
