I’m Mayor Angie Devanney. Welcome to BH Better Together, where everyone is welcomed and respected. We put people and progress before politics, community priorities over the special interests of a few, and we eat, breathe and live purple. What IS purple? Purple is blue (Democrats) and red (Republican) coming together to work for the good of our residents.
