WELCOME to 

the 'HOOD

 

We are the people in your neighborhood.

 

Most of us are currently serving or have served in leadership positions in our neighborhoods, community and/or in elected office.

 

We care about transparency, we care about our neighborhoods and we care about the people who live here.

 

We want to stop the "us vs. them" mentality.

 

We are committed to open communication, education of process, clarity of issues and accountability for our elected leadership.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU?

 

We want your stories, your photos and your observations of community volunteerism and  lessons learned. 

 

Send us your contribution + we'll share it here.

 

And in case someone hasn't said it to you recently -- thank you for the work you do to make our community a better place!
