Gasoline Alley since 1999

Tony Taylor has been the Co-Executive Director of Gasoline Alley shortly after his ‘cold call’ here about ten years ago. Tony was Vice President of Community Development for the Bank of Boston and making ‘cold calls’ on the street.we talked and shortly thereafter he resigned from the Bank and came here full time. Concurrently, he and his wife Mary run a wonderful day care in the basement of a local church.the kids are happy. Tony and Mary took advantage of the support at Gasoline Alley and have been an incredible outreach participant.we help with the business planning and Tony uses his experience at the Day Care to help others realize their dreams.the Day Care is also fertile ground for Tony’s financial literacy outreach program.
