Here's wishing everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

And, if you'd like to help me kick 2018 off on the right foot, please join me for my official City Council swearing in this Monday (January 8th) evening.

The ceremony will be during the regularly scheduled Council meeting. There's no telling if the Council Chamber will fill to capacity, so please arrive early (5:30ish) to get a seat.

Eastland is the predominant issue for many of us here in East Charlotte and the City is finalizing its proposal for the site. As our next Representative, I'm interested in meeting with everyone to discuss the City's current recommendations and gather community input.

I'm hosting two community meetings before the end of this month to do just that. The second meeting date and time have now been finalized and will be as follows:

Date: Tuesday, November 28...
Location: Calvary Church of the Nazarene, 4000 North Sharon Amity Road, Charlotte, NC 28205
Time: 6:30 p.m.- 8:00 p.m.

For anyone who can't make it to the first meeting (perhaps due to the Thanksgiving holiday), please join us for this second meeting. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
