Forward Brunswick elects new executive officers

At its annual meeting, nonprofit Forward Brunswick elected new executive board officers.

Ed Farley was named chairman, Al McKinnon vice chair & Terra Winslett treasurer and secretary. All votes were unanimous, according to a press release from the organization. Former Chair Ben Slade will remain on the board.

Forward Brunswick aims to coordinate businesses, government agencies and other groups in the city to perform revitalization projects and promote economic development. Along with the election of new officers, Forward Brunswick refined its 2023 strategic plan focus on four areas: amenities, beautification, development and growth.

The organization started off the year by planting over 50 trees around Brunswick as part of its Liberty Brunswick Project and partnered with the city government and Downtown Development Authority to pressure wash the sidewalks of Norwich Street between Gloucester and H streets.
