Tahlequah residents will get the chance to have a sit down with Mayor Sue Catron over a cup of coffee.
“The art of conversation is the give and take of ideas, opinions, humor and worries,” said Mayor Sue Catron. “The person is valued whether their points are similar or opposing. Without conversation, without encouraging others to share their thoughts and concerns, it is difficult to determine what is important.”
Coffee Cup Conversations is not only a great opportunity for the mayor to hear from you but also for you to ask the mayor, and occasionally a City Councilor, questions and hear about what is going on in the City of Tahlequah.
“We hear politicians talk about transparency and inclusiveness and then we watch as they close themselves off from the conversations that may influence their decisions and broaden their understanding,” Catron said. “I don’t consider myself to be a politician, but since I’ve been in office I can understand more how this happens. There are many demands on time. When considering priorities it is easy to dismiss short conversations from the calendar.”
Coffee Cup Conversations will take place on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. The first of the Coffee Cup Conversations has been scheduled for Jan. 14 at The Drip.
On Jan. 28, Coffee Cup Conversations will be at Out West Café, the Feb. 11 gathering will be at Bryant’s Daylight Donuts, Feb. 25 will be at Sunrise Donuts, March 10 will be at Kawi Café, and Morgan’s Bakery will host Coffee Cup Conversations on March 24.
Additional dates and locations are TBD.
