Guest speaker: City of Dayton Mayor, Gary Leitzell
Mayor Leitzell gave a very impressive and informative presentation. He discussed the great things that are happening in the Dayton area.
The Mayor stressed the need for everyone to become more "Pro-Active" in the community.  He talked about the talk show he appears on at 6:00 a.m. the third Friday of the month on Fox 45 and the last Friday of the month on Channel 2 at 6:00 a.m.! He also promotes getting out of the office and seeing  Dayton with a 4 minute "U-Tube Video" detailing what's going on in Dayton. The Mayor is also a strong supporter of Downtown Entertainment which he hope will flourish in conjunction with the Dayton Dragon's baseball games.
The Mayor also announced that Dayton made the "GO" magazine that is placed in the seat backs on airplanes. So next time your on a flight check out the "GO" article on Dayton!
Pay your water bill online, the pilot is just about complete.
Stay turned for Recycling in Dayton.  May be a great asset to the Dayton Community, financially and environmentally.
State of the City address will be held at the Kroc Center in April.
Thanks to Mayor Gary Leitzell for a great meeting!
