Marge McDonald of CSD has long sung the praises of Third District County Supervisor Neil Derry—and his vocal talents. Constituents in Joshua Tree this month got to sample the Supervisor doing Sinatra, as Derry performed at a fundraiser dinner hosted by the Joshua Tree Chamber of Commerce. It is said that Derry brought down the house with his set of Frank Sinatra songs—and, so as to share with the entire Third District, Derry’s Sinatra set is now on YouTube. As Derry has since said, “We are looking at becoming more interactive and connected with my constituents and think that the opportunities are limitless. Too often elected officials are seen as being disconnected, wound too tight or taking themselves too seriously.” As for the Joshua Tree fundraiser, which will benefit their downtown beautification efforts, Derry added, “It was a fantastic evening.” To view Supervisor Derry’s YouTube clip, you can visit the homepage of the KBHR website; see right sidebar–or use this link to YouTube.
