Cindy Bass to hold ‘Coffee with the Councilwoman’ sessions

Today, Cindy Bass, Councilwoman for the 8th District, announced that she would begin regularly holding “Coffee with the Councilwoman” on a rotating basis throughout the District in order to speak directly with constituents as she, and her staff, actively work to open a district office. Very much like holding “office hours,” Coffee with the Councilwoman will be an opportunity for local residents to spend time talking to Councilwoman Bass in their local coffee shop, diner, or restaurant.

“For some people, getting to City Hall from the Northwest is a hardship,” said Bass. “We aren’t waiting to open a district office in order to physically be in the community; the people can’t wait.” A constituent service liaison from her office will accompany Councilwoman Bass to each “Coffee with the Councilwoman.”

The first Coffee with the Councilwoman will be held this Friday, January 13th, from 3-5 p.m. at Wired Beans Cafe located 6734 Germantown Ave.
