Second Piedmont Constituent Meeting

City Council Member Piedmont to Host Constituent Meeting

District 5 City Council member Isabel Piedmont will hold a constituent meeting on Saturday, March 29, 9:30-10:30 am at the McDoel Market and Deli. This is the second in a series of meetings which take place the last Saturday of each month with the purpose of providing an update on city issues and a forum for constituent concerns. The McDoel Grocery is located at the corner of Rogers St. and W. Patterson Dr. in city council District 5.

“This month I will review recent issues before the Council including changes to the Sustainability Commission and the Commission on the Status of Women, as well as a resolution opposing logging in the back-country area of state forests,” said Piedmont. “I will also discuss the city’s participation in EarthHour 2008.” EarthHour is a world-wide event during which people around the globe will turn off their lights for one hour at 8 pm local time on Saturday, March 29. The city is encouraging participation as part of its efforts to reduce global warming and bring attention to the problem of global climate change.

Piedmont encourages all Bloomington residents, not just those in District 5, to join her for this Saturday meeting. Free coffee will be available courtesy of Piedmont, and the McDoel Deli serves breakfast for those interested in combining a meal with the meeting. More information about Piedmont is available on her website,

A big thank you to Isabel for holding this meeting. I attended today and it was wonderful to hear from our representative about the issues that are coming to the table, and to have an opportunity to voice our opinions.

I recognized at least 4 other BPNA members who attended so props to them too. ^_^
