I’m Dave Hornfischer, Framingham resident for over 30 years and husband of former FPAC board member Elsa Hornfischer. I’m serving a second term on the FPAC board, having served a one-year term in 2014-15. I’m a retired Senior VP of Finance & Administration/Treasurer at Berklee College of Music in Boston and a former board member of several area non-profits including Amazing Things Arts Center and the Bosox club, the Red Sox fan club. I’m excited by the progress AFTV has made in the last decade and want to work to continue that progress. High on my list of goals is to work to expand public and cable viewer awareness of AFTV, its programming, its facilities and its community outreach. I look forward to getting involved in learning how the station operates from a financial and business perspective but also by getting to learn more about what’s involved in technical stuff like camera shoots, editing, and show production.
