Wiggins calls for town hall

Published 8:00 am Saturday, October 6, 2018

Immediately before adjourning Tuesday’s meeting of the Cordele City Commission, Chairman John Wiggins announced that he plans to convene a town hall meeting on November 8 and urged all members of the community to attend.

“As the at-large elected official and as chairman of the Cordele City Commission, I am planning for a city-wide town hall meeting. Everyone who is a citizen in the city of Cordele, the town of Arabi, [and] the county of Crisp is invited to attend. This includes individuals, local government, quasi-government, non-profits, faith-based, business owners, and other city organizations,” Wiggins said.

“Many of us live, work, or own businesses in the city and use services provided by the city and county,” Wiggins explained. “I have called upon a group of concerned citizens to assist with the planning, conducting, and the follow-up on the town hall meeting. This is not a political event. The purpose of this town hall meeting is to share ideas, suggestions, and to begin to build an interwoven relationship for the benefit of current and future citizens, and for positive community development. I quote a familiar expression from the navy: All hands on deck.”

Wiggins plans to hold the November 8 event at the Cordele-Crisp Community Clubhouse for the November 8 event. More information on the town hall will be published as it becomes available.
