Council kicks off its 2019 Community Meeting series by introducing new Councilmember Shayla Favor during the January 26 meeting to be held at St. Stephen's Community House, 1500 E 17th Ave at 10am. Favor was selected to fill the remainder of the Council term vacated by former member Jaiza Page.
“I am humbled and excited to continue my service to the community,” said Favor. “I am ready to get to out there and work for the people of Columbus as your Councilmember.”
The Council Community Meeting series gives members more opportunities to listen to the needs and concerns of residents. In 2018, Council passed historic pieces of legislation that addressed retaliatory evictions, tax incentives and minimum and made direct investments in sidewalks, affordable housing and safety. Each piece of legislation was crafted from information gathered directly from residents.
