Town Of Moraga

Dick Olsen Honored as 2013 Citizen of the Year

On May 3, Dick Olsen was publicly recognized as Moraga’s 2013 Citizen of the Year at Saint Mary’s College Soda Center. Mayor Trotter, Councilmember Metcalf, and other dignitaries honored Dick with humorous and heartfelt praise. Dick is a long-time Moraga resident with an incredible history of community involvement including participation in the founding of the Town’s successful 1974 incorporation drive and later the Moraga Police Department and Moraga-Orinda Fire District. Dick’s leadership and commitment to the Town was felt most recently with his efforts on the Revenue Enhancement Community Outreach to Neighborhoods (RECON), where Dick’s marketing expertise helped form the committee’s road repair presentations used in the multi-year campaign to concisely and urgently educate Moragans on the critical need to fix Moraga’s streets and storm drains. Dick’s efforts helped Moraga voters understand the issues and overwhelmingly pass Measure K. Dick’s response? “No matter what accomplishments you made, somebody helped you!”
