Democratic Mayoral Nominee, Vince Gray, has announced a series of town hall meetings to be held city wide ahead of the general election on November 2, 2010.
Gray, along with Council Members and Area Neighborhood Commissioners from each Ward, will host the town halls to hear directly from residents about their concerns about District Government and the ways in which they would like city government to serve them best.
I encourage you attend the town hall scheduled to take place in your Ward to highlight three issues that pose a significant threat to the health of the District’s tree canopy – the fleecing of the Tree Fund, refusal to underground powerlines and the inadequate administration of the Tree Bill.
I have provided below a synopsis of each, and questions I hope you will consider asking at one the upcoming town halls or submitting to Gray’s mayoral campaign at action. You may also complete and return the campaign provided comment form. Feel free to print this email out to bring with you to the town hall and share with your friends and neighbors. The town hall schedule by Ward is at the bottom of this email.
Thank you for your tireless committment to restoring, ehancing and protecting the tree canopy of the Nation’s Capital.
