Linglestown Gazette: Community chat, FREE coffee on tap Tuesday at Roasters

Community chat, FREE coffee on tap Tuesday at Roasters

Hey, the good turnout at the CD roundtable has inspired me to sponsor another get-together in Linglestown for those who want to make a positive difference in our community.

Mark it on your calendar right now — Tuesday, July 10, 2012 starting at 7 pm, at St. Thomas Roasters coffee house, which is located in the Linglestown square.

The topic will be ...

3 Steps for Getting
Government that You Deserve

I believe that we live in a great country but there are growing storm clouds brewing in all levels of government. Fortunately, our form of democracy provides ways for citizens to impact governmental affairs, especially at the local level.

My concern is that too many people are too cynical, too lazy, too apathetic, too uninformed or a combination of these things to fight for government that genuinely serves you and me.

Let's talk about it on Tuesday, July 10 at Roasters, 7 pm.

I'll give a brief talk on the topic and then open it up for questions and discussion.

Be there or B²!
____

FREE beverage on B² ... All participants will receive a FREE small coffee or tea. This is the last call for this bribe.

Also, please email this blog post to five people who you would like to attend this event.

Why not run for Supervisor in the Township if you want to get involved? Also, try running for the School Board Bill.

For now, my goal is to wake people up about the world around them and that's easier to do as an activist.

In my opinion, many of the problems associated with government at all levels can be traced back to citizens not doing what they need to do.

I hope you, whoever you are, take time attend the chat.

And, please consider coming out of the closet by dropping the "anonymous" handle.

Great topic to discuss, Bill! I agree that many of the problems trace back to citizens not doing what they need to do. Have been learning much from our country's early history about how a few made a large difference. Exciting stuff! Will try to attend.

What would it take to get school board meetings taped and posted on the Comcast local access channel 22?

I realize there's a modest cost (and volunteers) to do this, but this could lead to more interest and activism. I've been to school board meetings and concluded "what a waste of an evening." If I could DVR through a meeting, yeah, I'd watch.

I'd volunteer to work the camera to get this started.

Good hearing from you, Rich, and thanks for the suggestion. I'll add televising school board meetings on public access stations to the wish list.
