Welcome to the conversation
Community. Civic engagement. Citizenship.
If you find something to care – or worry – about, show up on Monday, at a regular commission meeting, and say so. Or at the least, send an email to the commissioners and staff.
Or write a letter to the editor of The Ledger, post your concern on Facebook, or Twitter, or send me a note for this blog. Community government is three-legged stool consisting of the city commission, the city’s professional staff, and us: the citizenship. If we don’t hold up our end it will wobble and fail. So get on board and help us row.
We adhere to the charge from American poet, W.H. Auden who said "You owe it to all of us to get on with what you're good at."
