Fire Commissioner, Cattleman, Chairman

When Chairman Chris Lombardo was recruited to the museum by Simone Lutgert and Shelia Davis, like a gentleman, he didn't say no to the two ladies. He agreed that a children's museum was important to the community because, as he said, "I am a big kid, and I need some place to go."

As far as his involvement with ANight at the Museum, he was the Chair of the Board, so...

That definitely makes him perfectly suited for this year's theme: BIG WIGS!

But even though he's most known as a fire commissioner, he's also a cattleman and loves to go exploring! He has an antique swamp buggy but occasionally races Formula One style cars.

If you're looking for ways to connect with Chairman Lombardo at the Big Wigs Night at the Museum, try these conversation starters!

1. He prefers tea. Earl Grey with one lump of sugar... sugar, not some silly artificial sweetener. He wants the real stuff.

2. He prefers evening. Late evening.

3. When given the choice of chocolate or vanilla, he chooses vanilla... but says Pistachio is the real deal.

4. Between oceans and pools, he sides with oceans. Why? "...because it has sharks... it is not a real adventure unless there is something in the water that could eat you."

 ~ Quotes from Chairman Lombardo ~

On last year's event: "I loved the band! But I also liked the sculpting, and the nitrogen bubbles and digital graffiti and..."

On his favorite part of the museum: "The air launch rockets! But soon it will be the NEW digital Graffiti wall."

On pink or black: "Sunset, that is my favorite color, but if you insist, it would be black over pink."
