Albert Lee will be running in the Democratic primary 2020 as a congressional contender for the third district – our district. He is honoring our neighborhood with his first town hall at the Mt. Scott Community Center on Sunday, August 11 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. This is a chance for our community to get a feel for who Albert is and what he stands for. Plan to attend!
Congratulations to Mt. Scott – Arleta Neighborhood Association for securing a small neighborhoods grant from SEUL (Southeast Uplift) and the Office of Community and Civic Life. The grant will be used toward a much-needed Renter’s Rights Training:
In conjunction with CAT (Community Alliance of Tenants) the MSANA will present a 2-hour training to help community members understand how to become better equipped at locating, securing and retaining affordable and adequate housing. Using an accessible, public location, we will offer free food, childcare and translation services to encourage attendance by communities that need this training most. Please see details below.
Thanks also to contributions and assistance from our partners in adjoining neighborhoods:
Join your neighbors in a day of service painting over graffiti and picking up litter on 82nd – our Avenue of Roses!
Meet the Mt. Scott-Arleta team at 7738 SE Ellis St to pick up supplies, get trained, and have some morning snacks before heading to 82nd and Foster, where we’ll change the stretch from Foster Road to Duke Street from messy to marvelous.
Following the clean-up, we’ll meet fellow teams from Brentwood-Darlington, Foster-Powell & Lents for a thank-you lunch at one of our neighborhood parks.
Exhausted from the last national election? Elections don’t need to be that painful. Consider participating – and even joining the MSANA board by volunteering for a position. If you’re interested in knowing what’s required to become a board member, check out the Bylaws – Article VI, Sec. 2. And wow, are elections fun!
