Kshama Sawant, new East Precinct Capt. Edwards at 1/23 EastPAC meeting

Neighbors and Citizens:

 We are honored to have Cm. Kshama Sawant as our featured guest at our 6:30 PM January 23rd EastPAC meeting!

 Kshama will speak about her vision for the issues most impacting working people, youth and the poor in our communities… From inadequate wages and skyrocketing rent, to cuts to Metro and other social services that disproportionately impact poor and working-class citizens.  She will also talk about the impact these cuts have on public safety and the importance of democratic public accountability addressing policing practices.  There will be plenty of time on the agenda for your questions and input, so don’t miss this important meeting!

 Be mindful that the East Precinct boundaries are nearly identical to the newly approved Council District 3, so we need to be prepared for identifying our priorities as this representation becomes policy.

Also, meet our new East Precinct Captain Mike Edwards!  We will begin with introductions and then EastPAC Board member Joanna Cullen will give a brief update on the Metro bus service cuts, followed by Cm. Sawant.
