Citizen of the Week

Friday, July 10, 2009

People sit around the campfire talking about how to improve our city, and a scant few volunteer for city commissions or even participate in meaningful local events. David Renko has done all the above plus. Co-founder of the Fat Tire festival, Renko has volunteered for six years on the Parks and Recreation Commission, personally helped add miles of biking trails to the area, and generally has been a major player in bringing outdoor excitement to the lives of anybody with a pulse. Plus, his work as saxophonist extraordinaire for the Cate Brothers is legendary among those who care about Southern Soul Music. Rock on, please, Mr. Renko.
