The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.  Donors must be at least 18 years of agewith valid ID.
Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!

Councilman Elect Shawn O’Connell

Happy Holidays to everyone,

As your new City Councilman, I think it’s important that you are kept informed and are provided a way to comment on important issues.
This is the reason for this email.
Current Issue:
Open Council seat needs to be filled.    
A) Some options available to the City Council       
      1)  June 2013 Election – cost to be determined – seat will be vacant until June 2013       
      2) Direct appointment – (council takes qualification letters and after reviewing them, makes an appointment)       
     3) Committee interview/followed by appointment       
     4) Other
Which option would you pick? Why? (I am very much interested in finding out Why you would pick a particular option. This might help me consider something that I might have missed.)

Please feel free to respond via email, phone call, or twitter (see below). Have a safe & wonderful holiday.
