Amarillo State Of The City Scheduled For October 6
I'm not much of a political person. Sure, I pay attention to it but I'm not overly involved.
However, when it comes to the city I live in and represent, I want to know what's going on and where we're headed.
Today, it was announced that the State of the City has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 6th. The event will be held from 8-9am at HODGETOWN.
I use the word event because I have never in my life seen a state of anything be held at such an elaborate place. When you think HODGETOWN, you think baseball. You think concerts. You think of anything BUT politics right?
The above events are full of excitement, entertainment, food and alcohol. Can we expect all these things at the State of the City address?
Ok, I'm just having a little fun with it here. The reason for choosing HODGETOWN is because it's an outdoor venue as we keep COVID-19 in mind. This way the public can attend it in a safer fashion than being crammed in a small room somewhere at City Hall.
Let's get real about what we can really expect. While not too many details have been given about what we're going to hear about, we know Mayor Nelson and City of Amarillo leaders will be on hand. We know they'll be discussing where we've been, where we are and where we're headed.
I think the thing I'm most anticipating in hearing about is the plan for parks as well as proposed tax hikes we've been hearing about through the rumor mill. I'm hoping these are a couple things that will be addressed.
More details about the event will be released in the coming days, so keep your eyes peeled!
