Mayor Wood often says that the highest and best title in all of politics is that of “mayor”. The job of mayor is unique in American politics in that one can have vision, develop plans, form partnerships, build coalitions and ultimately get things done for the betterment of the community.
Since the services provided by local government are those most closely felt or depended upon by city residents, a mayor can have a big impact on the quality of life in a community far more than any other politician at any level of government. Mayors get things done, but only when they get feedback from their community’s citizens.
Most public servants at the local level, regardless of party, get involved to serve, solve problems and make a difference.
In an effort to most effectively serve the citizens of Mishawaka, Mayor Dave Wood wants to have a community conversation and hear from you.
Front porches are as American as apple pie, and the history of the American front porch is in some ways the history of the American people as well. It is a place to gather and experience community and conversation with family and friends.
Mishawaka citizens are invited to “Mishawaka’s Front Porch Friday with Mayor Dave Wood”. The event will be held on the front porch of the Mishawaka Utilities Business Office at 107 North Main Street, Mishawka. This is a time for Mishawaka citizens to come and have conversation with Mayor Wood and to share a cold lemonade. The event will take place on Friday, July 21st from noon to 1:30pm.
There is no need to RSVP and all Mishawaka citizens are invited to participate.
