Expanded Board to Work for Chambers Recovery Team

Anahuac, Texas – By expanding its board, the Chambers Recovery Team will be more effective in assisting with implementation of the Long Term Community Recovery Plan for the whole of Chambers County.

The board membership follows the organization’s new bylaws to ensure geographic representation across the county, with two members from each of 5 regions plus one at-large member:

Anahuac-Hankamer-Wallisville: Guy Robert Jackson (Chair); Bob Pascasio

Double Bayou-Oak Island-Smith Point: Artie Presley; Jacque White

Winnie-Stowell: Melissa Hodges (Secretary-Treasurer); Chuck Reddell

Beach City-Cove: Guido Persiani (Vice Chair); Hon. Lee Wiley

Mont Belvieu-Old River Winfree: Scott Neal; Alton Sanders

At-Large: Mary Beth Stengler

Chair Guy Robert Jackson noted that, “The board members also represent a diversity of interests and expertise in the county – local government, health services, small business, industry, navigation, tourism, and community involvement. Implementing the Long Term Community Recovery Plan will need and draw from all of these sectors to be successful.”

The Long Term Community Recovery Plan was created in 2009 during the post-Ike FEMA ESF-14 initiative. The initiative was a community-based process involving hundreds of citizens at workshops and planning meetings. The resulting plan included the identification of more than 100 specific projects to help make the county stronger and more resilient. The original steering committee from that initiative was appointed by Chambers County commissioners and formed the original core of the nonprofit Chambers Recovery Team (or “ChaRT” for short).
