4 Chesapeake Hens' "City Council Member of the Week" is Chesapeake's mayor, Dr. Alan P. Krasnoff. We wish to thank him for asking the City Manager for more information at last night's City Council Meeting. Here is what I wrote:
Dear Mayor Alan P. Krasnoff:
On behalf of "4 Chesapeake Hens," I wish to thank you for your warm welcome at the Chesapeake City Council Meeting last night. The progress of our online petition, mentioned in my speech, may be viewed at http://www.change.org/petitions/4chesapeakehens.
We also thank you for requesting a staff report from the City Manager. Our group has begun some to share research of its own at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Rt7GEKxDr6ZCVaQ6LXV3nd0UJ6T8NgiYtx5KD_R7uYQ/edit. You, the City Manager, or anyone else who is interested, may view this research online. Some of the videos, in particular, are enlightening; others are adorable! I particularly like the television interviews with residential flock owners in Nashville and in New York City. The page has numerous references to magazine articles and to books, as well.
If there is anything our group can do to facilitate the process of informing City Council or of making appropriate changes to the zoning laws, please feel free to contact us.
My contact information followed, of course!
