Are you among those in attendance? Will there be a report?
i was there. it was contentious as expected, but i left hopeful. blogged about it earlier today.
Anybody note the irony that it's at Jesuit?
No Jeffrey, I didn't go. I just figured that if Midura's office is going to reach out to bloggers we should acknowledge the effort. I won't be a mouthpiece for any councilperson, but I will announce meetings. I guess the test willl be how her office is about answering questions, now that they've sent out emails. But I do plan on attending that Riverfront meeting next Wednesday, it's ridiculous that NORA's in the paper a couple of times a week, but we never hear anything about NOBC.

Yeah, that is funny Ashley. Isn't Jesuit where just about all the District A meetings are held? I guess it would be taken as a sign of favoritism if meetings were held in either Lakeview or the part of Uptown that's in the district.
