ICYMI, below you’ll find news articles from last night, the full Norristown Council meeting recording, and a letter-to-the-editor that Mike co-authored with Montco Prothonotary Noah Marlier.
My thoughts on the night?
As I told Ravina: “I think all in all it was a somewhat productive meeting,” Hays told MediaNews Group. “I feel like a lot of people had a chance to vent and that includes the council president, that includes a lot of people who spoke during public comment, and what I hope comes out of this is all of us pushing toward the same goals and pushing for more affordable housing, finding solutions for the homeless, and I think if everyone contributes, if everyone comes to the table, we could definitely get it done.”
A lot of work – within and between all levels of government, houses of worship, and service organizations – will be required to come up with humane, sustainable and just solutions.
