A weekend of campaign-related efforts interspersed with the enjoyment of April's Carson City Wine Walk is moving this week into city government research and more campaign events, including a meet-and-greet with supporters.
On the Wine Walk, community spirits were high. Despite some who didn't like disruptions from the downtown project and others who looked forward to the changes, a consensus seemed to thrive in the Spring weather and enjoy the conviviality and seeing friends along the way.
Earlier on Saturday I attended Republican and Democratic meetings in Carson City. Along with Mayor Crowell and others, I spoke to the Democrats but was just on hand to observe at the GOP function.
Distributing yard signs and greeting residents, along with stopping by St. Peter's Episcopal Church downtown -- a favorite for folks on the Wine Walk -- capped off a great Saturday.
This week's activities include monitoring city budget discussions at the Community Center Monday, as well meeting with Public Works Director Darren Shulz in the afternoon and a campaign committee session that evening.
Tuesday brings a session with city schools Superintendent Richard Stokes to talk of coordination between the city's school system and government. On Wednesday, I'm meeting with Community Development Director Lee Pleml.
That afternoon and evening is a meet-and-greet event to formally kick off a campaign for city supervisor that actually has been organizing and gaining steam since mid-February.
On Thursday, as I have done for years on the first and third Thursdays of each month, I'll be on hand for another Board of Supervisors meeting to keep abreast of decisions made there. In this space, I'll keep you updated on such matters.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
