Mayor's Walk Thru Rockwood

Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis has continued his pledge to get into the neighborhoods, meet the people, and share ideas for making Gresham a better place to live.

On Saturday June 30th, the Mayor removed graffiti from several locations with help from the Graffiti Removal Team, concerned citizens, and neighbors. The Mayor then visited the community garden at Alder Elementary School, 17200 SE Alder St, and concluded his walk with an open discussion over coffee and a nice buffet with local citizens at Park Place Coffee 1288 SE 182nd. Mayor Bemis was joined by Councilor Carol Nielsen-Hood representing the City Council.

We encourage you to join the Mayor and Council person the next time a Walk is scheduled. The Mayor is an easy person to talk to, and keeps well up on issues.

Check this website for the next scheduled "Walk with the Mayor".

A special thanks to Park Place Coffee for their generous hospitality.
