Event to be held Thu., March 30 at The Gathering Place in Vancouver
Crime has been in the news often in Hazel Dell and other District 2 areas of Clark County and Councilor Michelle Belkot is inviting area citizens to attend her first town hall to talk about it. Belkot has invited Clark County Sheriff John Horch to share with the public about recent efforts and the best ways to reduce crime.
Crime, homelessness, and other topics will be a point of discussion as citizens will have the opportunity to hear Councilor Belkot give an update on important developments happening in the coming months.
In order to improve communications and give constituents more voice in their local government, Councilor Belkot promised during her campaign to hold quarterly town halls with the public and better represent the needs of District 2. These town halls are for constituents of District 2 to come and hear updates and ask questions or just be heard.
Councilor Belkot and Sheriff Horch will talk about and give an update focusing on the crime and take questions from District 2 constituents. Other topics that pertain to District 2 issues are welcome but the priority of questions will be given to District 2 residents. Belkot believes respect, courtesy, and open dialogue are vital paths for the community when tackling challenges in our neighborhoods.
