LWV: What are your goals should you be elected and how will you work to accomplish them with current resources?
Dr. Duvall: As a former business CEO, I am well versed in the processes and practices of responsible fiscal oversight, which is one of the duties of an elected trustee. I propose to serve on the Finance Committee.
I recognizes that the Ann Arbor District Library is one of the finest public library systems in the United States. As a trustee I sees my duty as to look at the big picture including modernizing the facilities, staying current with technology, and coordinating with other library systems, in Ann Arbor, the State of Michigan, across the country and in other countries, in order to maintain a forward-thinking dynamic attitude throughout the AADL organization.
I plan to work collaboratively with a wide variety of library patrons, community leaders, ALA futurist thinkers, and my international network. I have found that solutions and good suggestions arise from an atmosphere that treasures information and ideas from unexpected places.
