County Council At-Large Forum, March 7

Important neighborhood meeting Thursday, March 7th at 8 pm at the Viers Mill Rec Center (map).

We have invited our 4 At-Large Council Members to hear us present our neighborhood priorities and for them to provide an update on their agenda for the coming year. We are looking forward to hosting Council Members Hans Reimer, Will Jawando, Evan Glass and Gabe Albornoz. Council Members Jawando, Glass and Albornoz were recently elected to their first term on the Council. It is important for them to understand and appreciate our neighborhood priorities. Having all four At-Large Council Members at our community meeting is a special and unusual opportunity. This is our chance to show our Council Members that we have a strong community who should be considered as they grapple with the budget. To do that, we collectively need to show up to the meeting. Let’s fill the room with neighbors! We’ve long maintained strong relationships with our elected officials, and it has served us well over the years. Let’s show our Council Members how great and dedicated our community can be. If you come to one meeting this year, this should be the one.
