Capitol Hill Community Council News

Hello Capitol Hill denizens,

Thank you to all who came out for the CHCC Candidates Forum on Thursday night. It was great to see so many new faces and to meet people who are interested in shaping the future of Capitol Hill.

For those of you who are not very familiar with the Council, please check out the CHCC website. You can also sign up for an account and post to the Community Forums to discuss the Council and find out what's going on in Capitol Hill. It's easy and it's free. And if you have questions about the upcoming CHCC elections or about any of the officer candidates, please post to the CHCC Elections Forum.

As was stated at the Forum, the first job for the Council is to elect a new set of officers to lead the organization. Once this is complete, we will be in a much better position to guide the future of our community. However, if the Council is going to have any real effect on Capitol Hill it will require each of us to contribute at every opportunity. This means showing up at meetings and helping to shape the Council agenda. Ultimately, each of us holds the success of the Council in our own hands.


CHCC Steering Committee meeting
WHEN: Tentatively scheduled for May 7th from 6:30pm-8:00pm

Thanks again for coming out to support your community. This is important work and there is no one better to do it than you. Please email me or use the Community Forums if you need anything or want to get in touch with other members.

Best regards,
Daniel Rizzuto ( dan.rizzuto at gmail.com )
