Mayor Pond's Breakfast presentation praised by Chamber, highlighted by Civic information stream

Breakfast Meeting Wednesday at Arabisk at Seal Cove

By all accounts so far, the Wednesday Morning Breakfast briefing from Prince Rupert Mayor Herb Pond to a Chamber of Commerce gathering at Arabisk Mediterranean Cuisine at Seal Cove was a resounding success

The Chamber notes that the 7:30 AM breakfast meeting attracted 40 attendees to hear the Mayor and enjoy some of the gastronomic temptations of one of the city's most popular new restaurants.

The Chamber describing the Mayor's presentation  as a compelling update, which shed light on the future for the community, though they shared few details of the actual presentation that so captured their imagination.

City Hall appreciated the fulsome praise from the event, relaying their own salute to the Breakfast Club session, though there's so far been no follow up talking points memo of sorts, towards what the Mayor provided for content to the gathering.

Since the Communications office at City Hall is suggesting residents follow their social media stream for updates on future opportunities to catch up with the Mayor.  

Perhaps they might want to offer up a transcript of his Wednesday address for those that may not have had the thirty dollars for Chamber membership or could not make it out to Seal Cove for the morning presentation.

Towards such community engagement events in town for the future. 

With both the Prince Rupert and District Chamber and the City hosting video options, perhaps  recording the various chats around town that may be ahead, might be an option for both groups to consider so as to add to the local political discourse of engagement.

It's been a busy week for speechifying for the city's Mayor, as we noted yesterday, prior to the Wednesday event at Arabisk, Mr. Pond and a delegation had been in Ketchikan, attending a Chamber of Commerce event in that community.
