There is a Community meeting next Wednesday, 6/13 which includes the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 17th Districts. It has been called due to the recent crime in the neighborhood.

What I would like to suggest is to postpone our Public Safety meeting next Tuesday and go to the Community Meeting on Wednesday, 6/13 to show our support from the 4th District. There also may be new suggestions as to what all may do to help. Continue reading
