Margot Hall

Objectives:
I have been a member of the Board of Managers of Edmond Town Hall since December 2010.  I filled a vacancy, was elected for the remainder of the vacancy term in 2011, and would like to continue to fill a seat on the Board for the coming full term.

While I have been a member of the ETH Board I have learned a great deal about the structural and management needs of Newtown’s historic Edmond Town Hall at 45 Main Street.  Since its dedication 80 plus years ago, the generosity of Mary Hawley, the vigilance of Board leaders and members and the support of the leadership and citizens of Newtown have kept this magnificent building alive.

In the past 2 years the Board has completed extensive renovation of the plaster walls in the theater, updated power availability, lighting and sound. Other renovations to accommodate the use of the building by the public and those who rent space have also taken place. The cupola has been restored to its former glory!

It is my hope that I can continue to help create continued financial viability and structural integrity of Edmond Town Hall.  To achieve that I feel that the Board needs to provide a building which has the latest technological updates to maintain and attract tenants/performers for the available space.  It is my plan to work with my fellow Board members to achieve that goal.
