Last week, Baltimore lost one of our brightest guiding lights. Representative Elijah Cummings exemplified the definition of public servant. He will be missed more than any words could convey, but his legacy and his impact will live on for generations. See Paris’ statement.
In The Community
As the campaign progresses, Paris is continuing to spend time talking with folks – not just on the doors, but also at community events. Some highlights:
Speaking to families before the Greektown Neighborhood Association’s movie night. Most of the children in this neighborhood attend John Ruhrah and are very excited for their new 21st century school to re-open in January. See more here.
Participating in the Canton Community Association’s “Citizens On Patrol (COP)” walk. Paris spoke with residents about her plans to take a hands-on and practical approach to public safety and to push for public health solutions that will have an immediate impact on crime. See more here.
Presenting to the O’Donnell Heights Tenants Council. Paris has spent many days knocking on doors in this community recently, so she has heard a lot about their main concerns: inconsistent police presence, drug activity, and opportunities for youth. As you know, #ParisHasAPlan to address all of these issues. See more here.
Make Your Voice Heard
Tomorrow, October 25th, is the last day to share your input on how to improve our parks and recreation services through Baltimore City’s Department of Recreation and Parks’ five-year strategic planning process. You can take their survey here.
Our District 1 Priorities Survey is still available for residents to share their most pressing concerns about our community with Paris. Make sure you take the survey if you haven’t already, or send it to your neighbors so they can share their insights.
Please join us for our next campaign fundraiser on Thursday, November 14th from 6-8pm! You can expect delicious Greek food, warm company, and the camaraderie of people truly concerned about the future of Southeast Baltimore.
You can reserve your ticket online here, or send a check payable to Friends of Paris Bienert, c/o Rice Consulting, 17 W Courtland St, Suite 210, Bel Air MD 21014.
Calling all volunteers! We have a big Day of Action coming up this Saturday, October 26th! Help us keep up our momentum on the doors by coming out with us. Click here to volunteer on Saturday or any day you have available.
