We would like to welcome John “JJ” Burke to the Woodland Chamber of Commerce.

Burke, a retired Coast Guard Officer originally from Massachusetts, was announced Wednesday as the new director for the Woodland Chamber of Commerce by Judy Bartlett, the board’s group president. Burke, a long time resident of Woodland and the owner of JJ’s Computer Repair, will report to his new job at the Chamber, which has nearly 200 members, starting Monday.

JJ is also a member of the Woodland City Council and he ran for mayor in 2011.
