Mayor Gow Fields invites local residents to attend the next Mornings with the Mayor event at 7 a.m. on Friday, December 9, 2011 at Fred’s Southern Kitchen (2120 Harden Boulevard Lakeland, FL). Mayor Fields will make his remarks and take questions from the audience around 7:30 a.m. after they have had a chance to go through the breakfast buffet.
Mayor Fields said, “Accessibility is one of the keys to local government and Mornings with the Mayor provides the opportunity for our citizens to share their views, ask questions and provide feedback on issues that are directly affecting them.” He added, “These events have been very successful and they allow me to spend valuable face to face time with our residents.”
Mornings with the Mayor allows residents an informal and comfortable forum in which to meet with the Mayor to talk about issues, ask questions, voice concerns and offer comments or suggestions. Mayor Fields said, “It’s also an excellent way for us to gather candid feedback about how people feel things are going in our City; what amenities they particularly enjoy, areas they feel could use improvement, or what they’d like to see in the future.”
Fred’s Southern Kitchen has reserved a private dining area for the event. The restaurant features a breakfast buffet as well as menu items. Those wishing to partake in breakfast are responsible for the cost of their own meal.
