On Tuesday, March 15, the community councils of Fairview, Government Hill and Mountain View hosted a candidate forum for the downtown Assembly seat. It was one of the few forums focused on that single seat, and it lasted about two hours, easily the longest of any this season.
Because the airwaves aren’t saturated with political ads like they were last fall, you may not have noticed that municipal campaign season is actually in full swing. A glance at my calendar, which is loaded with various candidate forums (not all of which I can attend), confirms that fact.
Tuesday night’s Assembly meeting was a relatively tame affair, though we expect a busier agenda at our March 29 gathering. The proceedings got off to a very nice start, however, when we took a few minutes to honor a community volunteer.
