Deborah Wilder (Director) is the former Mayor of Foster City and served on the City Council for 8 years. Deborah is a longtime fan of Hillbarn and a season subscriber. While Deborah admits singing and acting are not her forte, she did spend nearly 20 years taking dance. Having taken ballet, tap, jazz and Polynesian dancing, her favorite remains tap dancing. A little known fact is that she worked her way through law school as a dance instructor. In 2000 some of you may have seen her in a tap duo number with T. Jack Foster Jr. for Hillbarn’s Raising the Roof fundraiser.
