Announcement of a Mayoral Candidate Town Hall Meeting
Many I have talked to feel that Phoenix needs changing and that Neighborhoods, Businesses and Citizens all over the city are being harmed by present policies and direction.
This August, we will be electing a new Mayor. Wes Gullett is one of the candidates. He will be holding a town hall style meeting on 3/8/11 as follows:
Mountain View Lutheran Church
11002 S. 48th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85044
Tuesday, March 8th, 2011
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
This event is NOT a fundraiser. It is an opportunity for you to ask the hard questions on the issues that matter to you and hear the vision for the City of a candidate who could be our next mayor. As other candidates may schedule similar town hall meetings, we shall endeavor to so inform you.
Please plan on attending on Tuesday, March 8th. Even if you don’t ask a single question and just listen to others and watching Gullett interact with the crowd, you will have a better basis for voting than you otherwise would have.
In the last Mayoral/Council election only 11% of the city’s voters chose our Mayor and Council persons in the odd numbered districts. This is a pathetic turnout in any city, never mind in a city the size of Phoenix. Don’t let 11% of the voters, many driven by special interest groups – decide who your next Mayor will be? Attend candidate town hall meetings when they are scheduled and then show up to vote.
Please send this email to your friends and members of your associations and Coalitions.
This announcement which should not be construed as an endorsement consistent with the commitment to attempt to advise whenever a mayoral candidate schedules a town hall type meeting. The first such meeting was held by Greg Stanton.
