Thanks for joining Sustainable Shawnee at City Commission Candidates Forum. I think we had a helpful discussion on a number "quality of life" issues including sidewalks, trails, bike lanes, water quality and recycling. Remember the election is in June so get out and VOTE!
Sustainable Shawnee plans to host another forum for the House and Senate candidates later this summer so keep an eye out for the date!
Look for an article on the event in the next edition of the Countywide!
