In addition to running for Board of Education, Chris is involved with the Center Street Cemetery Association, serving on the Board of Directors since 2012 and currently as the Association’s Acting Secretary. He has been employed by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield since 1995 and currently is a Marketing Director with the company.
