Time to Make a Difference: Historic Preservation

One of my favorite quotes for my campaign, "Communities can be shaped by choice, or they can be shaped by chance. We can keep on accepting the kind of communities we get, or we can start creating the kind of communities we want".— Richard Moe, National Trust for Historic Preservation
