While Sunny may be the face, figure, icon of Sun Glass, my family and I have enjoyed doing our part to make the family business successful. I was born and raised in Farmington and graduated from Farmington High School (go Scorps!). Like most graduates, I thought there was a better world outside of Farmington, so I moved to Texas to attend college. I met my beautiful wife, Megan, there and after I graduated from college, I got a job and we made our home there.After 15 years, we decided there really isn’t any better place than home, and we came back to Farmington to help with the family business and to raise our own family.

We know how important family and community are and we’re glad to be home, where we can make a difference.When I was invited into becoming part of the chamber’s Executive Committee, I knew I was in for a ride, but didn’t realize it would be such a fun and challenging ride! Being part of the committee and helping lead the chamber forward has been a lot of hard work, a lot of time and effort, but also a lot of fun. It’s also been a learning experience. Because of the chamber, I’ve become aware of the challenges and opportunities every business faces, and I’m grateful to be part of the process that helps those businesses be successful. I’ve enjoyed giving my time and my talents to help our members begin and grow their business. The chamber is a leader in our community and I’m honored to be part of it.

As we move forward into a new year, the chamber has a strategic plan that will be implemented. We had great minds giving input into the plan and we’ll all be working together to make the plan become a reality. We’ll be including all of our committee chairs in our monthly Board of Directors meetings, so they can share what’s happening in those committees and how we, as a board, can help. We’ll be inviting more people to become involved and we’ll be active in making our chamber and our community grow.

We’ll also be working closely with the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, the City of Farmington and Four Corners Economic Development to share our resources to attract new businesses to Farmington. We are fortunate in our community that organizations work well together and that the priority for us all is a community that provides jobs and a great quality of life.

But it won’t be all work – we’re going to play a little too. We’ll get together at our monthly Business After Hours to network, learn about the host business and to share what’s new in our own business. We’ll help with the Four Corners Oil and Gas Conference, we’ll partner with the city and the CVB for the History Makers event during Freedom Days, we’ll eat, drink and be merry at Chile in October, and we’ll brave the cold and kick off the holidays with the Christmas parade. In addition, we’ll cut a lot of ribbons, make a lot of new friends, and have another successful year.year.
