Thanks to our friends at Neighborhood Services, Executive Director Ron Cooper was invited to speak to community partnership meetings in all eight Sacramento City Council districts. On the same panel, local leaders were introduced to the Neighborhood News Bureaus Project, learned about the City’s Waste Management program, asked questions about the new City Council District boundaries, and met new City Manager John Shirey. Cooper was approached by many neighborhood leaders interested in the NNB concept including City Public Information Officer Amy Williams.Our thanks go to Vincene Jones of Neighborhood Services for helping to make this possible.
