August Walk Day
I work for you, and it remains vitally important for me to hear directly from you and your neighbors about what our community needs to truly thrive. I hope you will join us on Monday, Aug. 30, at 2 p.m. for some door-to-door outreach in one of our city’s vibrant neighborhoods. Summer is a great time to connect with one another while enjoying some fresh air and exercise. Please RSVP with my office or by clicking here by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 26, and we will follow up with a meeting location.
It’s hard to believe that the 2021-22 school year is already upon us. The first day of school for the Lansing School District is Monday, Aug. 30. Everett High School, my alma mater, has put out a call for volunteers to greet students on the first day of school. There are time slots available throughout the day, from 7 a.m. to 2:40 p.m. If you’re interested in helping out, you can sign up here. I hope to see you there bright and early!

September Coffee Hour
I am excited to announce that our next constituent coffee hour will take place on Thursday, Sept. 16, from 8:30-10 a.m. at the Alfreda Schmidt Southside Community Center (5825 Wise Road) OR virtually via Zoom. Please RSVP here and indicate if you would like the Zoom login information emailed to you.
We will be joined by special guest Ellery Sosebee, Interim Chief of Police at Lansing Police Department.
