Mayor Hamilton To Propose “Recovering Forward” In Thursday Remarks

(BLOOMINGTON) – On Thursday, July 16, Mayor John Hamilton will present remarks about the range of challenges currently confronting the community and propose strategies for addressing them in a transformative way. 

The mayor will offer his remarks in a video presentation available starting at 12 noon Thursday at the City’s Facebook page

Titled “Recovering Forward,” the mayor’s public address will examine some critical issues at hand — including the current public health crisis; racism, discrimination and inequity; the climate emergency; and the economic collapse.

  The talk will explore various and integrated solutions so Bloomington can not only recover from these threats, but emerge as a more resilient, just, and sustainable community.
