“Spend more time with my family and exercise more.”
Cumberland County Manager James Martin

“To get closer to God and to spend more time with my family.”
Keith A. Bates Sr.

“While I don’t actually make annual resolutions, the turning of the clock’s
hands from one year to the next favors, in me, a periodic review of my own
attitudes and habits. For 2009, a couple of these I’d like to improve upon
— committing to and maintaining a more regular exercise and conditioning
program; and a need for me to take pause and appreciate the moment — the
moments of life move all too quickly through our paths, and I need to be
more attentive to each and every one of them in a positive, appreciative
way, for their pleasures and memories can be taken for granted all too easily.”
Robin Jenkins, Ph.D.
Cumberland County CommuniCare, Inc.

“I have two resolutions, actually — one personal, and one professional. The first is to pay more attention to my family — to make sure that their needs are being met and that I’m able to be a good husband and father. My second resolution is to be better organized. I’ve spent the first six months in my role in Fayetteville trying to sort through history and getting my arms around where we are as a community and, more importantly, where we’re going. I’ve pledged to myself that I’ll do a better job of staying organized as we ramp up new products, services and offerings to Chamber members!”
Douglas S. Peters, IOM
President & CEO, Fayetteville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce

{mosimage}“I’m going to try not to do as much shopping in the New Year. I don’t normally make resolutions, but because of the economy I think that’s one I need to stick to. It’s a mindset ... mind over matter. Also, I want to be nicer to people.”
Judy Dawkins,
Director, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program

“To provide the very best services to our citizens.”
J. Breeden Blackwell, Cumberland County Commissioner

“Spend more time with my wife and family.
Stick to my exercise program.
Continue to work for the improvement of Fayetteville.”
Dale E. Iman
City Manager
City of Fayetteville

“My New Year’s Resolution is to recruit new better-paying jobs to Fayetteville.”
Fayetteville Mayor Tony Chavonne

“My desire for the upcoming 2009 year is to have a better, improved Christian
lifestyle. I have found in my life that when I live better for Chirst I make
the best ‘decisions’ regardless of what the subject is, and I’m surrounded
by His favor.”
Darrell Haire,
Fayetteville City Councilman

“I want to continue to make the best decisions I can with the information I have so all 305,000 citizens of Cumberland County can see their new year’s wishes come true.”
Dr. Jeannette Council,
Chairman Cumberland County Commissioners
