Mount Airy Mayor Patrick Rockinberg has appointed Donnamarie Needle to the Economic Development Commission of Mount Airy, effective immediately. Donnamarie is a Realtor® with WEICHERT, REALTORS® — New Colony, based out of New Colony’s Mount Airy office located on Main Street.
As a member of the Economic Development Commission, Donnamarie will work toward reducing the vacancy rate of retail and commercial properties, particularly those in high-visibility locations and on downtown Main Street. Bringing more small businesses to town and helping existing small businesses are among Donnamarie’s goals as she moves forward in this position.
“As a member of the local business community, I’d like to give back to the town that has provided so much to me and my family for nearly two decades,” Donnamarie says. “Mount Airy has been a rock in our lives. It is a small enough town that we can look out for each other, yet big enough for a thriving business community. With greater connectivity, I picture our downtown becoming the heart of the community that meets the needs of our current residents, and even drawing new business from beyond our boundaries.”
Donnamarie is a member of Mount Airy Women in Motion and has served on the board of the Ridge Seals Swim Team for several years, currently as the Frederick Summer Swim League Representative.
