Alpine’s Honorary Mayor Race starts now
Join the race to become Alpine’s new Honorary Mayor!
The Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce holds the annual competition to raise money for nonprofit community causes. Every dollar donated to a candidate’s campaign is a “vote.” The candidate with the most “votes” wins.
Each candidate then gives the money he or she earns to the nonprofit charity, organization or educational purpose of their choice so there are no losers.
Last year four contenders raised a record-breaking total amount of about $15,000 to help children with cancer and adults who need to improve their lives, to provide technology for Alpine public school students and to assist local youth.
The Honorary Mayor has no official duties ---- no worrying about fixing potholes or balancing budgets, for instance.
“The Alpine Honorary Mayor is the goodwill ambassador in the community,” said current incumbent Rose Signore, a Chamber director and owner of the Postal Annex of Alpine. “I try to attend every ribbon cutting possible, grand openings. I rode in the 4th of July Parade!”
