This January, the Initiative continues its monthly series featuring members of the Initiative’s Clean Team. The Clean Team is made up of 6 members who work for our partner ACE. Most readers recognize our Clean Team from their distinctive sapphire blue SoHo Broadway t-shirts. The goal of this series is to introduce the SoHo Broadway Community to the men who work tirelessly each day to keep the SoHo Broadway corridor looking its best.
Meet Clean Team Member Lance Marsh
Lance was born in Toronto and moved to New York when he was 7. Since moving to the Bronx those many years ago, he now calls New York home and currently lives on Staten Island with his father. With his Canadian roots it is not surprising that he enjoys playing hockey and is an avid hockey fan (he’s an Anaheim Ducks fan!). As a long time New York City resident, he takes full advantage of all the City has to offer.
Lance serves as the Clean Team’s Acting Supervisor.
On December 18, Lance joined the Initiative’s Executive Director, Mark Dicus, for lunch.
