Join Us for a Sustainability Talkback!

Tuesday, March 9th
6:00 - 8:00
La Crema Cafeteria (formerly Cafe Cafe)
just east of the intersection of 44th & Zuni
Contact: Sundari Kraft

As I discussed in a previous post, Denver's City Council has a tremendous impact on the laws that govern our city. The newly vacant seat in District 1 has created an opportunity for all Denver residents to affect the direction of our City Council.

Susan Shepherd is one of the candidates running for the vacant seat, in a special election that is taking place within the next few weeks. Susan has a deep interest in sustainability issues and has pledged to make urban sustainability one of the platforms of her campaign.

Our talkback event will begin with a brief introduction by Susan, where she will outline her ideas for championing sustainable/green initiatives. After the introduction, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and/or make statements regarding the changes you would like to see the City Council support. Your input will help shape the issues Susan will pursue when she is elected to City Council. Please participate even if you don't live in District 1 --- the decisions that City Council make will impact the entire city.

Susan Shepherd is a candidate for Denver City Council District 1. This Mom, urban farmer and community organizer knows what it takes to cultivate a vibrant, healthy community. From strong schools and safe streets to local, independent businesses and sustainable food systems, Susan is committed to growing a resilient Northwest Denver through responsive, progressive political action. We live here, we play here, we are all in this together. In the weeks leading up to the special election, it is Susan's goal to earn your confidence and support as the best choice to represent our neighborhood on the Denver City Council.
