Historic City News readers are patriotically invited to attend the next open meeting of the Saint Augustine Tea Party when the special guest speaker will be newly re-elected Mayor Nancy Shaver. During the Primary Election August 28th, Shaver defeated two challengers with more than 57% of the ballots cast. She was declared the winner of her third two-year term.
In the City of St Augustine, the mayor is the highest elected official of the charter government. Mayor Shaver chairs all meetings of the five-member city commission where each member has an equal vote. The commission hires three employees — the City Clerk, City Attorney, and the City Manager, who runs the day-to-day operations.
Shaver said her top priorities for the next two years include improving infrastructure and traffic issues. She will also be addressing the contextualization of the Confederate Memorial, the outbreak of lawlessness in the streets by protesters, and other important issues in St. Augustine.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at the Village Inn, located at 900 North Ponce de Leon Boulevard, in St. Augustine. All regular meetings are open without charge to Tea Party members, their guests, and members of the public. You are encouraged to bring a friend.
A question and answer period will follow the presentation, time permitting. Learn more about Saint Augustine Tea Party and the Town Crier Committee on their website at SaintAugustineTeaParty.org
