Campus Town Hall Meeting Tuesday

Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan will be holding a Town and Gown Town Hall Meeting on the University of Arkansas campus this week. The event will be in Old Main Giffels Auditorium from 12:30 to 1:30 on Tuesday, March 24th.

This is an opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to learn more about our local government and to ask questions about the programs and policies of city government. All members of AFSCME Local 965 are encouraged to attend during their lunch break.

Mayor Jordan will be joined by several city department heads, including Police Chief Greg Tabor, Trails Coordinator Matt Mihalevich, Parks and Recreation Director Connie Edmonston, Sustainability Coordinator John Coleman, Bryan Pugh from Recycling and Composting Facilities, and Yolanda Fields from Community Development and Code Enforcement.

Chief of Staff Don Marr will also discuss opportunities for citizen involvement and service on city boards and commissions that deal with environmental concerns, historic preservation, sidewalks, trails, trees and landscape, support for the arts, Fayetteville Public Library, Yvonne Richardson Center, telecommunications policy, and the Council of Neighborhoods.

The last 30 minutes of the meeting will be devoted exclusively to questions from the audience.

The headline and photo caption in the Arkansas Traveler the following day or so after that meeting called Lioneld "MAJOR Jordan." Did the ROTC present him with that title or was it a "freshman moment" among the Traveler staff?
