Rick Campbell – Rick’s been a merchant in the Julian townsite for over 35 years. He served as a Chamber board member in the 1980’s in the capacity of treasure. If elected to the new 2016 board, Rick’s focus will be on marketing, to help increase business for the Julian townsite businesses.

Leslie Crouch – Leslie moved to Julian in 2007 and continued her business, Wetduck Designs, that she began in El Cajon, out of her home. Last year she opened her shop at the Trading Post on Hwy 79. As a business owner specializing in promotional products. She feels she will be able to bring fresh ideas to promote, support and encourage Julian Chamber Members to reach their full potential.

Adelle Delgado – Adele has lived in Julian for 40 years and seen a lot of the ebb and flow of the town. She and her husband own the Candy Basket. She believes we can build on what we have and use new marketing techniques to make it even better. She wants to develop events that leave time for people to shop and enjoy our town.

Kat Dupre – Kat is the owner of Kat’s Yarn and Craft Cottage. She stepped up to fill a board vacancy early this year and would like to continue to serve the Julian Community and the interests and needs of both new and long-time businesses, especially as Membership Chair. Her former career in higher education management, program development, marketing and recruitment provides many useful transferable skills.
