Dear Maingate Businesses,
I am Joe Carey. Most of you know me already. I was the founding President of Maingate in 1985. I am assuming the role of interim Executive Director of Maingate.
Maingate has had a very difficult time for the last 6 years. The reasons are manifold. It serves no purpose to enumerate them. We are moving ahead! We are going back to our roots – active participation of our members. This was always our strength.
Maingate is absolutely necessary to the success of our businesses. Alone, we have very little influence with the powers that be. Together we have great strength! I ask all of you to re-dedicate yourselves to our purpose — protecting and strengthening our businesses. We will begin to have membership meetings as soon as I can get things back together. I welcome your help and feedback.
Very truly yours,
