An official kick-off event for Gibran Graham was held earlier tonight at Giacomo's in Bangor.
Graham is the marketing manager for The Briar Patch book store, as well as an active member of a networking group for young professionals, known as Fusion.
The Bangor resident says he's excited to become a member of the panel.
"I have been involved with a lot of things in the city for a number of years now, and this really seemed like the next logical step to be able to do more of that," said Graham.
Graham made the decision official Monday, when he filed the necessary paperwork at Bangor City Hall.
