Join Us for a Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday!

During the campaign, one of the things I heard most often from citizens was a feeling of being disconnected from city government. Because of that, one of the first pledges I made to you was to hold regular town-hall meetings where YOU get to tell US what you're thinking.

The first of those meetings will be next week, Wednesday January 20, at the new library in Cascade Park.

This is a City function, where YOURS is the most important voice. What is and isn't working for you? How can we, as your representatives, serve you better? I and your councilmembers will be there to listen to you and answer your questions, and provide a greater link between our vibrant neighborhoods and City Hall.

Here is the information released by the City:

Face to Face with Mayor Leavitt and the Vancouver City Council

Mayor Tim Leavitt will host an opportunity for informal conversation between the public and the Vancouver City Council from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., on Wednesday, Jan. 20, at the Cascade Park Library Community Room, 600 NE 136th Ave.

"It is important to me to provide an opportunity for Vancouver's citizens to talk to us about what is on their minds in a more casual setting," said Mayor Leavitt.
Light refreshments will be served. Questions will be taken at the meeting or may be submitted ahead of the meeting at
