Listening, learning and doing have been the themes of the city of Anniston’s Strategic Planning Process, “One City, One Vision.” At 6 p.m. on Tuesday, the Anniston City Meeting Center will host a summit in which all the results of the workshops will be revealed and implementable strategies will begin development.

Through all of this good work, however, I specifically want to ask young people aged 18 to 35 to please attend. This age group was the least represented at the previous three workshops. Since I am a member of this sector, I want to remind my peers that we are the future of Anniston and we must determine our own destiny through active engagement and commitment.

I know many young Annistonians care because many encouraged me to run for office. Sometimes work, children and life in general can keep us extremely busy, which I understand. At the same time, I’m asking those who can, to sacrifice one night in order to work to make all of those other factors better. It’s going to take all of Anniston for the city to move forward in the right direction.

Lastly, remember this, even Tupac said: “The power is in the people and politics we address.” See you at the summit.
