Ward 2 Participatory Budgeting Meeting

On January 20th at 7pm, the PB Team will be making a brief presentation about PBW2 at a Town Hall meeting at City Hall in the Council Chambers.

This is part of a larger meeting regarding the initiatives from Peoples Platform during last years elections.

Facebook details are here

I’m sure many of you who aren’t already attending are either already committed elsewhere, or else are receiving this a bit late to be changing plans to attend. However, you are nevertheless welcome to join us, and we hope you will all be able to do so. We will be making our brief presentation near the beginning of the evening, so if you are absolutely pressed for time, you can come for the start and leave early; however, I encourage you all to stay with us and enjoy the rest of the event, as Norman has promised us an entertaining and informative evening.

If you can think of anyone else whom you feel should know about this important event, please forward this email to them with my thanks.

Thank you all, and I hope to see all or as many of you there as possible.

Lee Edward McIlmoyle, Stinson PB Representative,
