Media Alert: Front Porch Friday with Mayor Dave Wood


For further information contact Mayor Dave Wood at 574-258-1601 or Executive Director, Development & Governmental Affairs, Matthew Lentsch at 574-535-8679 

Front Porch Friday with Mayor Dave Wood is scheduled for this Friday from noon to 1:00 pm. 

What: Front Porch Friday with Mayor Dave Wood 

When: Friday, June 7th, 2024, from noon to 1:00 pm.  

Where: The event will be held on the front porch of the Mishawaka Utilities Business Office at 107 North Main Street, Mishawaka. 

Background: Mayor Wood often says that the highest and best title in all of politics is that of “mayor.”  The job of a mayor is unique in American politics in that one can have a vision, develop plans, form partnerships, build coalitions, and get things done for the betterment of the community.
Since the services provided by local government are those most keenly felt or depended upon by city residents, a mayor can have a significant 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 in serving, solving problems, and making a difference.
To serve the citizens of Mishawaka, Mayor Dave Wood wants to have a community conversation and hear most effectively from you.
