After featuring Mecklenburg County Manager Harry Jones in the kickoff of its "The Heat Is On: Summer Talk Series" two weeks ago (click here to read Michaela Duckett's article for Qcitymetro.com), next up CAABJ brings in Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx. Mayor Foxx will speak this Thursday, July 14.
The event starts at 7 p.m. and will begin with a CAABJ meeting, and then Mayor Foxx will speak to the audience. CAABJ members and guests will have a candid conversation with the mayor about how he thinks the media covers city government. He could also give an update on the Democratic National Convention planning and other city projects. The event takes place at Kickstand Burgers-N-Bar, 1101 Central Ave. See you there!
