67 Ashland St. Malden, MA 02148 T 617.216.4576 JONATHAN BEKEMEIER December 4, 2023 UMA Malden, MA To Whom It May Concern, I’d like to present myself as a candidate for a member of your Board of Directors. I have lived in Malden for over 20 years and have worked in television, film, and advertising for over 30 years. I consider myself incredibly fortunate, in those 20+ years, to have seen Malden grow into an exciting, vibrant, and diverse community. With my extensive media experience, I feel that I could be a valuable asset to UMA. While I am familiar with UMA and it’s operations, I cannot say that I am completely knowledgable of all that UMA has to offer, but am eager to learn more and be a part of your exciting group and help continue to make it something that fellow Maldonians can be proud of. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely yours, Jonathan Bekemeier

Ted Lewis
