A Little Ginger With Your Lunch? Weekly Chats With The Mayor Are Here.
Everyone has always had their opinion. Ever notice though it seems the opinions are stronger and more plentiful these days?
We look for ways to get in front of our leaders to talk. We want to express those concerns and ideas.
Well now you have that opportunity, at least in the city of Amarillo.
Mayor Ginger Nelson has introduced a new weekly Zoom forum, "Listening Lunch With The Mayor".
The program kicks off today, December 1st at 12pm and will continue to be held each Wednesday at noon for the foreseeable future.
Mayor Nelson will go over issues in the city, things the local government is working on and in general just have a chat with the local residents of Amarillo.
I know the big question on your mind is, "will I actually get to talk? Or am I just listening?". Well good news for you, this is an event where the residents will get to ask question, voice their concerns and more.
Mayor Nelson told KAMR, "“We created this as an easy opportunity for citizens to talk with the mayor. I am looking forward to hearing more from residents.”
They opted for the Zoom concept because it would be easier for residents to tune in and be a part of things. I think we all know it's not convenient for us to slip out of our office for an hour, but it's much easier to pop up a Zoom meeting at work.
If you want to join the chats, you have to register here. There are dates all the way through the end of October 2022 that you can sign up for at the moment.
