One of two new politicians on District of Maple Ridge council wants to stay connected to the people who voted her in by hosting weekly coffee sessions at Haney Place Mall.
Coun. Corisa Bell will be at Cafe Beans every Friday from 10 a.m. to noon.
She’ll try that for the rest of the month then see if the response warrants continuing.
Bell is active on Facebook, Twitter and has a website blog.
“I encourage the public to come out and discuss what is important to them, whether it is an idea they have for improvement, things they are unhappy with or if they just want to talk about life in Maple Ridge,” says Bell.
“To me, being on council is about the community and I want citizens to know I am here for them and I want to listen.”
