Lots going on this week: Tongass Democrats have our monthly business meeting this Thursday, and the CBJ Assembly calendar shows meetings of three of the big committees (Public Works and Facilities, Lands, and Finance), as well as a Committee of the Whole Worksession and Treadwell Arena Advisory Board meeting.
Also, for the first time, I’ve listed out your opportunities to testify before the Legislature.
Read on for meeting locations, dates and times.
The regular monthly business meeting for Tongass Democrats is held the first Thursday of every month. So, that means we all get to see each other this Thursday, May 4, at 5:15 PM at the IBEW hall (813 W. 12th St., Juneau).
