Marria Knight – Board Candidate

I am Marria Knight and have served on your Board for two years. My background is 40 years of Special Education and 5 years in retail. I feel that it is imperative that the Baker Food Co-op lives on for many years in Baker City. With your support and creative thinking, we can come together to flush out ideas that make this co-op strong and more viable. It is my wish to glean from all of you what is important to grow a sustainable hub of choices of products and services for our communities. I am open to your thoughts and ideas. Each and every idea from you, the members, will have thoughtful consideration. It truly “Takes a Village”. I value what all of you do and I would appreciate your vote.
