From the Board of the Hamlet of Beavercreek: Christine Kosinski was elected and has served on the board of directors of The Hamlet of Beavercreek since the Hamlet’s inception in 2006. As Corresponding Secretary and Chair of the Transportation Committee, Christine has communicated the Hamlet’s position to the County, Oregon City, and other jurisdictions, and kept her finger on the pulse of activities in the Hamlet’s northern territory. In addition, Christine is a resident landslide expert who has worked with international geological experts to learn and share her knowledge with state and local leaders, committees and residents.
Christine is a professional in every aspect of the word: always prepared, well-researched, and methodical in her delivery of the endless testimonies she has given at the State, County, and City levels. Even though she has retired from the Hamlet Board, it is her intent to continue to be involved in transportation, landslide, and growth activities and to report back to the Hamlet Board as our Speaker Emeritus. We sincerely thank Christine for her dedication, community commitment, and service to her neighbors and friends.
From Tammy Stevens, Hamlet Board Chair: Community service is a funny thing. People get involved for so many different and important reasons… family, friends, experiences, accidentally, random concerns, community, to make a difference, to make changes, to make a point, advance careers, etc.
For me, I wanted to know what CPO meant (by the way, it means Community Planning Organization). But for some – the compassionate, the dedicated, and the committed among us (and believe me this is rare) – it’s for love. Love for their fellow humans, love for nature, love for environment, love for fairness, honesty, and life. When I say this is rare, I mean I’ve only seen this once – in my fellow CPO and Hamlet Board member and friend, Christine Kosinski.
Christine is an extremely dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother, and one of the smartest most dedicated community advocates I’ve ever meant. How do you thank someone for caring so much, for giving so much, for her commitment, her drive, her dedication, her love? How I plan to thank her is to strive every day to find value and time to give back, pay it forward, and leave our community a better place to live, play, and work.
Thank you Christine for all you’ve done, all you do, and for the amazing impact you’ve made in our home, Beavercreek. I love you and I thank you.
Editor’s Note: There’s no Hamlet recap this month, as the meeting was cancelled due to inclement weather. It will resume in March.
