Dear friend,

This week and next, before the September 15 primaries, GVSHP and the Historic District Council’s League of Preservation Voters will be co-sponsoring a series of free and open forums for the candidates for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd City Council Council District seats. Please join us!

Your presence lets the candidates know that preservation and development issues are important to the residents of the neighborhoods they are seeking to represent. At the forums, candidates will be asked questions by the sponsoring organizations and from among questions submitted by audience members. Candidates will be given an opportunity to make statements regarding their positions and priorities on preservation and development in the districts they are seeking to represent.

I hope you’ll attend! Further information is below.

Sincerely,

Andrew Berman
Executive Director
