I hope this holiday season finds you well. I am looking forward to spending quality and peaceful time with family and friends in the coming weeks, while appreciating just how lucky we are to live in the greatest state in the greatest nation on earth.
I know there are a million things to do during the holidays, but I want to let you know about a Snow Removal Town Hall hosted by a group of local and state representatives, including myself. Representatives from DOT and the Municipality’s Maintenance division will be in attendance to describe snow removal and plowing procedures, as well as answer your questions. Hopefully we all learn something, and can work with maintenance crews to find solutions that make our streets safer and more functional.
The event is Monday, December 18, from 6-7:30 p.m. at Wonder Park Elementary School (5101 E 4th Ave). Please come by if this is of interest to you. I’ve been told there will be cookies.
Also, please save the date for an East Anchorage constituent meeting put on by Senator Wielechowski and me. It will be Thursday, January 11, 2018, from 6:30-8 p.m. at Begich Middle School (7440 Creekside Center Drive). We’d love to hear your concerns, questions, ideas, and suggestions. We’re also buying pizza. I hope you are able to make it.
With winter weather, increased traffic, and people celebrating the holidays, I pray that you and your family remain safe and healthy this holiday season.
