Our City Councilmember, Brad Lander, is the guest speaker at this month's meeting of the Albemarle Neighborhood Association (ANA). His topic will be "Participatory Budgeting," the project in participatory democracy that he brought to his City Council district last year and again this year. 

The meeting will take place this Thursday, April 18th, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., in University Place.
