This Thursday, August 2nd there will be a townhall meeting hosted by Post 1 councilman Phil Saad and Post 5 At-Large councilwoman Lorri Christopher. The meeting is scheduled to be held at the Winters Chapel United Methodist Church at 5150 Winters Chapel Road at 7:30pm.
Hoping to build on the success of the first ‘townhall’ meeting held a few weeks ago, this one is expected to be of a similar Q & A format. It is expected that Mayor Mike Mason will be a featured guest as well as a representative of Wal-Mart. For those who don’t know, Wal-Mart is building a scaled down, grocery based store in the old Winn-Dixie shopping center at the intersection of Winters Chapel and Peeler Rd.
I would urge all residents, especially those in District 1, to come out and meet with your elected officials. It is a good opportunity to interact with them in a less formal setting than a city council meeting and get an update on the city's progress in its first month.
