Clarksville City Councilperson Karen Reynolds – Ward 9 Newsletter, September 6th

City of Clarksville - Ward 9Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts has called a special session on Tuesday,  September 7th, 2021 to select a person to fill the vacant Ward 1 and Ward 5 seats. Each person applying for one of the open seats was provided 5 minutes to address the city council at our meeting.

Your voice matters and I would like to meet with members of the community. I was planning on hosting a Townhall but the increase in the COVID 19 Coronavirus has made this not possible. If you are hosting a neighborhood picnic or there is a gathering I would be happy to meet with residents to discuss your concerns or ideas for our community.

As our community grows and infills we need to consider schools, traffic, sidewalks, and green space. Citizen involvement makes a difference, I appreciate the residents who write letters, make phone calls, and come to the meetings to speak.

As always, please contact me if you have questions or concerns. I only answer calls that are in my contact list, please leave a message or send a quick text and I will call you back.
