FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MAINSTREET ROSWELL ANNOUNCES NEW DIRECTOR

MainStreet Roswell is pleased to announce that Tom Blake has joined the organization as the new Director in a position recently vacated by Dusty Huckabee.  Tom will be vital in working with the New Mexico Economic Development Department, MainStreet New Mexico, the City of Roswell and downtown merchants to build a resilient MainStreet while combining historic preservation with asset-based economic development.

Tom was born and raised in Roswell and has innovative ideas to develop a long-term, comprehensive vision and plan of action for the Roswell community and MainStreet Roswell.  Many people know Tom as a talented musician, but he is also involved in the planning and implementation of many events in Roswell.

Tom joins MainStreet Roswell after working for the City of Roswell Parks and Recreation Department for many years.  Tom has been married to his wife, Marina, for over 30 years and they have 2 children who live and work in Roswell and two granddaughters.  Tom is also a member of the Roswell Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors.

Tom says, “I look forward to working with the MainStreet Roswell Board and downtown merchants to further develop the MainStreet vision and increase exposure for the MainStreet Corridor businesses to enhance economic development in the area. I am fortunate to work with this group of volunteers and program whose vision is to benefit the City of Roswell.”

“Tom’s knowledge of Roswell and experience in planning events has already made him a key addition to our organization,” states MainStreet Roswell Board President Peggy Seskey.  “We view his appointment as a sign of our commitment to the Roswell community.  Tom will play a key role in providing and implementing high quality solutions to build the MainStreet Corridor and economic development with the downtown merchants.”
