Not so Virtual
Vol. 1, No. 18 April 28, 2020
Given my hopes of reaching more people, this edition will also be delivered on paper.
We (I hope to have some help) intend to walk behind the garbage trucks at the end of this week and put a flyer on each bin. My hope is that more people will learn that this sporadic publication is available by email. Please send me your email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will be sure you receive new editions by email. Or go to my web site to read future (and past) publications: www.mayorsallyphilips.com.
THE PARKS [some of them, partially] WILL OPEN on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 29!
Please be sure you understand that there are quite a few restrictions to using the parks.
Please stay safe and keep others safe.
There is a public comment portal where anyone who wants to comment about safely re-opening Florida can do so:
