City Hall Moves to Jefferson High

Accepting an invitation from students, Mayor Tom Potter is moving his office to Jefferson High next week.

In addition to the regular city council meeting Wednesday, the school board will meet at Jefferson Monday night and Potter will deliver his annual State of the City address there on Friday.

Thursday night is CommUnity night, sponsored by the Jefferson PTSA, featuring entertainment for kids of all ages, free child care, and opportunities to speak with the mayor, Portland Public Schools superintendent Carole Smith, and Jefferson principal Cynthia Harris.

The full schedule (163 KB PDF) is available on the city’s Web site, and I’ve created a citizen’s guide to civic participation detailing opportunities to address the mayor, the city council and the school board.

This is probably a great opportunity to meet some of the candidates for city council and the mayor’s race as well (rumor has it that Amanda Fritz will be helping out in the community room). This is a historic event, with many opportunities for the greater community to witness and participate in the democratic process.
