Through Ernest's role on the PPNA Board, he enjoys getting to know his neighbors, bringing people together, and building community. A neighbor since 2015, Ernest looks forward to the continual growth and neighborhood improvements that will ultimately reverse the narrative of Baltimore City. Ernest loves knowing his neighbors personally; they share food, watch each other's pets, and get each other's mail. When you see Ernest out and about, you're in for a treat; when he's not working in his garden, he is likely delivering homemade baked goods at a neighborhood event. Swap stories with Ernest about baking tips for unique kitchen creations such as cakes or creme puffs!

Colin has lived in Patterson Park since 2014 and enjoys meeting people, making connections in the community, and spending time at the park. His work with PPNA focuses on creative placemaking, traffic calming, community connectedness, and pedestrian and neighborhood safety. More broadly, he's happy to support neighborhood and city efforts that celebrate diversity, foster inclusion, and increase equity of opportunity for all neighbors and residents of Baltimore. Colin is a bike commuter and an avid bike rider and is excited for the city's Complete Streets commitment to design safe multimodal transit infrastructure throughout the city, particularly with respect to bicycle infrastructure in the Wolfe/Washington (north-south) corridors and in the Bank/Gough (east-west) corridors.
