Davidson Commissioners kick off monthly "coffee chat" series

Davidson elected officials held their first "coffee chat" at The Egg in The Saddler Square shopping center on Monday.  Roughly 40 people were said to have attended.

Special guests for this first event included NCGA electeds Sen Jeff Tarte and Rep John Bradford to give an update on goings on in Raleigh, and topics ranged from education spending, to toll roads, to the local Catalyst Project.

Based on how few people attended the previously scheduled "commissioner chats", this new format appears to be a raging success.  The earlier format occurred rather sporadically only on months that happened to have a fifth Tuesday, and the meetings were in the evening.  This new format will occur on the third Monday of the month from 9-10am.

Glad to see the town working to keep this kind of informal format alive.  This kind of up close and personal interaction with elected officials is one of the nice things about #smalltownliving!
