One More for the Road
Phil Bondi, RPT
The time has come. History will determine whether my time with the gavel was well spent for this organization, or if I was just another empty suit with a tuning lever. When I started 20 years ago, if you had told me that I would spend almost half of my professional life on the PTG board of directors, five of them with the executive committee and two of those five as president, I probably would have put the tuning lever down and headed for the hills. Some well-respected individuals have guided, helped, prodded, and pleaded with me to run for elected office. As much as I enjoy keeping things light, I took that vote of confidence seriously, and I kept it in mind when decisions needed to be made, popular or not.
