Please note additions to the Crime and Public Safety Panel at the Community Meeting Wednesday at Schlafly Library. For those unable to attend in person, the event will be live streamed on my Facebook page starting at 6 pm (here is the link). You do NOT need a Facebook account to listen in.
This event is a grassroots effort on the part of CWE residents Maggie Pearson, Katie O’Connor, and me, as well as assistance from Jim Whyte, executive director of the CWE’s Neighborhood Security Initiative.

Thanks to everyone who organized this event and who gave up several hours of precious time to speak to us and explain their thinking on this subject. It is not a stretch to say “This is how democracy works.” I’m grateful to all of you and to those who were able to come to the meeting, as well as those who will spend the time to watch it on YouTube.

Thank you for helping to initiate this!
This started with a call for action by residents of Maryland Avenue, led by Maggie Pearson and Katie O’Connor. There was a meeting of those residents with CWENSI’s Jim Whyte, 5th District Captain Christi Marks, & Alderman Mike Gras a couple of weeks ago. Since this topic is on everyone’s mind, we thought it would be beneficial to bring the discussion to the whole community.
