At-Large Councilmember Mendehlson

We received late notice on this, but hope the community will participate. Come for the meeting then make the quick jaunt down 17th Street for the High Heel Race!

Note: We are hearing that the Councilmember is against the anti-prostitution vehicle bill that our neighborhood strongly supports. We urge participants to gather clarification on this.

Councilmember Mendelson would like to invite you to his Public Safety Town Hall Meeting on October 25th. It will be at the Third District Police Headquarters (1620 V Street) at 7:00pm.

The Councilmember would like to discuss issues presently before the Council. He would also like to hear the concerns of Third District residents. We will be joined by members of the US Attorney' s Office.

Please spread the word to your friends and neighbors. We look forward to seeing you there.

Our community is supporting this bill? Certainly no one asked me.

If you're an Iowa resident, then you should check with your ANC Commissioner Bob Ellison, who presented testimony on this piece of legislation.

In terms of the actual legislation, please write to your Councilmember's Office to receive a copy (Logan's is Jack Evans).
