always good ideas at the bottom of a coffee cup.

Today, River City Eatery hosted "Coffee with the Council," and I can't tell you how wonderful it is that the city council is offering the public a neutral space and time to sit down over coffee and have discussions about the important things facing our community.  This is a step in the right direction, folks.  I believe city politics should be transparent.  I believe city politicians should be approachable, and we should be able to have positive discussions about issues that will directly reflect the quality of life in our city.  I believe in an opportunity to be heard and understood. I believe the tough decisions we trust our city leaders to make should be guided by the voices and concerns of the people who live in our community.  Through Coffee with the Council, our city council members are now giving us, the people of this community, the perfect opportunity to be heard in a non formal, intimidation-free environment, and I encourage all community members to attend Coffee with the Council.  Below is a list of places and times for the upcoming year.
