The January 12th meeting of the East Lynn Community Association will host Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy for a “state of the city” type presentation with a question and answer forum following. In addition, representatives of Inspectional Services and DPW will be on hand to address rodent problems and recycling, respectively.

The meeting will be held at Congregation Ahabat Sholom, 151 Ocean Street in Lynn, at 7:00 p.m. The public is invited and there is no charge for attending.

Mary Trahan, ELCA President, said “It is very important for individual citizens to be involved with our city’s governance. Everyone is busy, and it is so easy to just complain. Getting in there and being active is really key to change. We are responsible to know what’s going on and to let our officials know how we feel and what we want. If we don’t express our concerns and expectations, it’s hard to hold anyone accountable. It’s time each of us take ownership in a positive way. Each of us is, in fact, responsible for Lynn’s future.”

The mission of the ELCA is to promote pride and ownership in the Lynn community through beautification, education, recreation, and neighborly relationships.
