BBC Friday 7 February 2020 – Mayor Leslie Schneider, “Meet The Mayor” Q&A

This BBC Friday, our own long-time BBC Regular, OfficeXpats owner, and now Bainbridge Island Mayor, Leslie Schneider, will lead a discussion on cool city mayor sorts of things. And there will be plenty of time for Q&A.

“While maybe ‘Mayor Schneider’ is not as cool an alliteration as ‘Mayor Medina’, it is what it is for the coming year,” so says Mayor Schneider. [Though I think ‘Mayor Leslie’ sounds totally rad!]

Mayor Leslie’s been at it for all of a month now, so come with your questions — e.g. “How much power does the Mayor have?” and “What’s all the talk about a ‘strong’ mayor vs. a ‘weak’ mayor?” She might even have some advice for how to write a letter to Council that gets their attention. Leslie’s bio: Contact: [email protected].

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise!  Arr…….

So Invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!
