Payne and Frankfort, behind Caffe Classico.  We'll chat and eat and discuss some 
of our ideas for creating a more social neighborhood.

Please bring any and all ideas, and some friends and family, too, enough food 
for your party + three. We'll talk about what we like, what we'd like to change, 
and what groups of people you feel like you want to connect with but don't know 
how. We'll discuss the Social aspect ties in with the rest of Sustainable 
Clifton/ Gaia Education activities. We'll finish at 7:30 on the dot.

For those who can't make it, it would be great if you sent along your ideas by 
e-mail so we can make sure they're not left out. We'll move the meeting days and 
times around so that everyone has a chance to participate.


2. Building a Sustainable Presence in Local Politics

Meeting again Tuesday March 18 7:30-8:30 am
Heine Bros Eastern Pkway at Bardstown Road
Please join us and or indicate your interest by email.

We are working to connect with folks who touch sustainability from any number of portals.Our goal is to build a consistent sustainability presence in local politics. Who you know know who that would help represent this key interest area and help network with others who want to impact Louisville Metro Council members and the Jefferson County Legislative Delegation in particular, but other elected officials and other public policy arenas as well?

We are looking at vetting candidates for the upcoming primaries and offering a green view of those running for office. A first step is to develop a candidate response form based on issues important to Jefferson County residents.  We need your input. If you have members you know who might help us work toward consistent cohesive political action on behalf of sustainability, please forward this email and invite them to attend Tuesday March 18 at 7:30 a.m. or email to or for more information.

Also looking for liaisons in each Metro Council District as well as Jefferson County House and Senate members. Who can call email visit or write consistently regarding sustainabilty issues or help vet candidates?
