What's Druh been up to?

by Katherine - 0 Comment(s)

Today's post was written by one of my favourite former co-workers. Here it is:

One of the many promises I constantly make to myself is to be more active in my community and this includes being more aware of what my elected representatives are doing for neighborhood I live and work in. Sadly, like most of my intentions, I have not followed through as much as I'd like. Like many Calgarians I keep finding myself in a voting booth, stubby little pencil in hand, wishing the choice I was about to make was more informed.

This Thursday night, at the Louise Riley Library Program Centre, citizens of Ward 7 have a wonderful opportunity to find out what Alderman (or, if you like, Councilor) Druh Farrell has been doing on their behalf over the past year, with a question period to follow. What a great way to connect with City Hall! We all hear that politicians need to listen to the people, but don't the people themselves have a responsibility to know what's going on?
