Happy Holidays!

 

This is the season of thanks, and at Tripepi Smith there is much to be thankful for. First, I am thankful for my work, which takes me to city halls all over the state. When I visit a new city hall, I get excited. I like to see how the council chambers are laid out, or what the visitor greeting experience is like. Wandering into city halls reveals murals that tell the lore of the community, or collateral that highlights the challenges residents face. I have been able to learn so much about our great cities in mere minutes at a city hall.

The 482 municipalities dotted all over this massive state provide waypoints to understand the totality of California. From the dense urban center of San Francisco to the expanding suburb of Murrieta, there is a lot to explore. I started a map of the city halls I have visited (meaning I have, at a minimum, entered their lobby) in California. At last count I was only up to 107, so I have a lot more traveling to do. Let's get your city hall on the map!

Second, I am so thankful for the people with whom I have the pleasure of working. Within our team at Tripepi Smith (there are 12 of us now) and in the cities and organizations we support, I have an opportunity to engage with incredible people every day.

Lastly, I am thankful for the experiences Tripepi Smith affords me. Because of our client diversity, I can explore California, engage in public policy conundrums, and sometimes, in partnership with our clients, I get to throw parties and visit socially. Life is grand. I hope it is for you, too, this holiday season.

Cheers,
