Our Alderman Tom Broeker has joined the ranks of us who have our own blog, right here at Ask the Alderman. I am super excited about being able to read his words and see what he’s thinking about what is going on in this city. It’s also going to be great to have another way of contacting him for any questions we might have.
Which brings me to this- his post yesterday about the Picnic in the Park. Here’s his very good explanation of why they are doing this at a time like this:
Currently, I do not feel you can put a price tag on bringing this city back together. As the commercial says: Priceless. This Patriotic Picnic in the Park may only be a very small first step but it is a step forward nonetheless. I assure you with your partnership, patience, and trust there will be many more.
But wait! There’s more! He also explains how the city is not spending any new money on this celebration, but you’ll have to go over there to read it. I am so incredibly pleased that we have an alderman who is so approachable and willing to explain anything we might want to know. Thank you so much, Mr. Broeker.
