City Councilman Steve Ross has 2011 Community Events Planned

Today researching upcoming family events in the city I noticed a very stark difference between the city council members pages when it comes family activities. Yet again Steve Ross appears to be the only city council person with not only truly family friendly events planned, but his office also puts them up on the website so that we can all know about them.
Take a look at the map then click through so you get to the official city website and see what your city council member has lined up for your family.

As for the cynical thinking that Steve’s office only has the materials up now because he is running for mayor, this is simply not the case. I have lived in Ward 6 for 4 years and have always been able to know well in advance before family events are planned. What is the point of investing in the activities if no one ever knows about them?

Thank you Steve Ross for keeping this part of the valley a great place for families and creating a sense of community our neighborhoods need.

Here is the list so far of events planned for Ward 6. All council members plan events like these for their districts, yet Steve is the only one to tell you about them well in advance to maximize community participation.
