In his continuing effort to bring government to the people, Councilman Rick Blackwell is announcing a new event “Coffee with your Councilman” beginning in February for residents of District 12.
The first “Coffee with your Councilman” will be held on Saturday, February 7th at Sister Bean’s, 4956 Manslick Road beginning at 10:00am.
“I want to provide opportunities for neighbors to voice concerns and suggestions to me in person,” says Blackwell. “We had a great response to our monthly District 12 Dialogues, this is a chance for those who may not have free time during the week to come out and meet on a weekend.”
“This is a less structured event with no predetermined agenda. I hope residents will come by, have a cup of coffee on me and just chat,” says Blackwell.
In 2003, the Councilman created monthly District 12 Dialogues held on the third Tuesday of each month. Each dialogue features a different agency of local government in addition to having representatives from MSD, Codes and Regulations, Louisville Metro Police Department, Neighborhoods and Congressman Yarmuth’s Office.
