Former New Glasgow Mayor Ann MacLean is applauding initiatives by the town to connect with its citizens. The Town has begun a conversation with its residents, it calls Engage and Empower sessions, with roundtable discussions on concerns and ideas for its future. MacLean will be the guest speaker for the next session, planned for Wednesday night at 7 at the Glasgow Square Theatre.
MacLean says engaging with Town citizens was key in the community’s development during her 17-year term as Mayor.
MacLean says having sessions like this is one of the best forms of accountable and open transparent government you can have, to work with the community in partnership in shaping its future.
MacLean will be interviewed by Danny Graham from Engage Nova Scotia at Wednesday’s session on her motivation to volunteer and enter municipal politics. That will be followed by round table discussions
