Meet the Candidates for Mayor and grill em about their green plans for Sioux Falls!

Where: Leonardo’s Cafe at the Washington Pavilion (301 S. Main Avenue)
When: Wednesday, March 24th, 2010,  5:00 until whenever!
Why: Drinks and good green conversation.  Ask the questions that are important to you!

“There’s a big election coming up, and Sioux Falls will pick a new mayor. We’ve invited all six candidates to Green Drinks on 3/24 for a bit of Q+A with you. Leonardo’s Cafe at the Washington Pavilion will open special for this event.

Things will get rolling around 5pm, with the normal networking time. We’ll pass the convo starter bucket if you need it. Then, starting at 6pm we’ll give everyone a chance to share their own green news and notes with a ’round-the-room, and take in a two-minute intro from each mayoral candidate. Following the get-to-know-you stuff, we’ll ask the candidates a few of your questions on the green future of Sioux Falls (Green Drinks, Sioux Falls).”
