Indivisible Lambertville-New Hope (ILNH), an activist and social justice organization, will host leaders from Hunterdon and Bucks counties at its February Community Gathering.
The public is invited to the Feb.17 event, which will be held at 204 North Union St., Lambertville, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Attendees should note that there is limited access to chairs, however, many more can be accommodated who are willing to sit on the floor.
The five mayors and one supervisor chair will participate in a panel session to share local initiatives, concerns and ways constituents can get involved.
Included are Mark Baum Baicker , chairman of the Solebury Township Board of Supervisors; and Mayors Betsy Driver, Flemington, N.J.; Julia Fahl, Lambertville, N.J.; Janice Kovach, Clinton, N.J.; Brad Myhre, Frenchtown, N.J.; Ron Strouse, Doylestown.
The leaders will field questions about their motivation to run for office, their 2019 local initiatives and how their constituents can get involved to help build their communities.
“Our organization has grown significantly in the past two years we’ve been active, and we’re seeing heightened interest in getting involved in politics and government from all sorts of people,” said Cindi Sternfeld, ILNH Operating Team lead. “We aim to inform and inspire them to participate at whatever level they can. We’re very excited to host our first Mayors’ Panel with such an esteemed group of local leaders, and are very grateful for their enthusiastic response.”
ILNH has approximately 1200 participants from Hunterdon, Bucks and surrounding areas, and is one of more than 6,000 Indivisible organizations located throughout the United States and beyond.
