“This is an opportunity to learn what is going on in the district, receive updates on projects and programs and let me know if you have any priorities that should be addressed,” says Hollander.
The next District 9 Community Conversation will be held at Supplies Over Seas, 1500 Arlington Avenue beginning at 6:30pm.
