Talk with Tom

“Talk with Tom” this Saturday, August 15 at Dunkin Dougnuts!

Come let Councilman Owen know what’s on your mind.
The next “Talk with Tom” will be held at Dunkin Donuts in front of the Mid-City Mall, 1250 Bardstown Road from 9:00am to 11:00am on Saturday, August 15th.
“Summer is winding down. School is underway and I am sure there may be a few people who would like to talk to me about an issue or concern in the district and I always want to listen.” says Councilman Tom Owen (D-8).
These meetings are one way Councilman Owen reaches out to residents of the district. There is no formal agenda or sign up required. It’s just an opportunity to talk one on one with the Councilman.
“Sometimes chatting over a cup of coffee can be an effective way to express a concern, large or small, in a comfortable setting,” says Owen.
For more information about the August “Talk with Tom”, contact Councilman Owen’s office at 574-1108.
