Kudos for Mary Lou

Your fine article highlighting the career of Mary Lou Blackwood as executive vice-president of the Malibu Chamber of Commerce gives much deserved public recognition to this remarkable community asset. Local businesses are deeply indebted to Mary Lou for her vigilant representation of our concerns and interests and for her constant promotion of “Shop Malibu.”

Her energy, effort and enthusiasm in coordinating the annual Malibu Art Festival are legendary. While her exemplary diplomacy was often tested, her down-to-earth manner and sense of humor always smoothed the way.

For all her outstanding accomplishments, her lasting legacy to Malibu is the creation of the Malibu Economic Profile and its presentation to the City Council as a tool to assess the financial picture of Malibu. From all of us in the Malibu business community, cheers, Mary Lou, for a job well done!
