Not alot to report for this week.

Taylor has become the Director of Political Affairs so Sara Cox will now be the Deputy for External.

The Community Advisory Board meeting is coming up in November. From email chains, it seems that Oregon Hill is still having a lot of problems. Maybe we should have our next trash pick-up there.

Still recruiting volunteers for the SBE - LICA has been notified and will be getting back to me.
