Candidate Statement: The Central Coop has fed, employed, educated, and inspired the Seattle community for over forty years because of its commitment to sustainable, high quality food and the supporting community of leaders and members required to deliver on that mission every day. And the Coop has been my store for over 15 years and even served as my bulk source of produce when I owned and operated the non-profit Perkatory Café down the street on 14th and Union before the corner was redeveloped. My name is Casey Cerretani and I have served as an executive leader at four companies in three industries ranging from board games to software to cloud computing hardware. Throughout my career I have sought to balance sustainability, thoughtful business practices, and investment in people as I believe that our communities are better when businesses of all sizes learn to engage and listen to their people and local place. I have volunteered and served on advisory boards in Free Schools, Waldorf Schools, youth organizations and non-profits in Seattle and Portland – experience that has always grounded me in the importance of listening, engaging, and seeking to serve the whole community. I look forward to serving the Coop in our wonderful communities as well. Thank you for considering me as a candidate for the Board!
