February 5, 2013 - Nextdoor.com’s Senior City Strategist Justine Fenwick is the guest speaker at Councilmember Patrick O'Donnell’s monthly, “Chat With Pat,” meeting tomorrow from 4:30-6 p.m. at the Los Altos Library. Nextdoor.com is a free, private neighborhood-based social network many 4th District residents use to discuss public safety and community issues, according to O’Donnell.
“I feel it's important to inform my residents on how to use the site to get to know their neighbors and what's going on in their community,” O’Donnell said in a statement.
O’Donnell told the Business Journal he joined the site about eight months ago to post about neighborhood events, and that it is great for following neighborhood trends and concerns.
“It is a great way to notify neighbors about new businesses as well,” he said.
“Chat with Pat” is a monthly community meeting featuring guests of interest to the 4th District and is open to all residents. According to his website, O’Donnell is the only councilmember who holds a monthly meeting where residents can share their thoughts and concerns. Previous “Chat with Pat” guests included former Assemblymember Betty Karnette, Mayor Bob Foster, and CSULB President F. King Alexander.
