Lindsey Constance - Clueless in Shawnee

It appears that our not so illustrious Ward IV council rep, Lindsey Constance is clueless about Shawnee.

She sends out a newsletter at the end of every month. In it she points out events that have happened and upcoming events for the next month. In this case we are talking about her end of July newsletter.
So, what did she fail to list for August? Various items to include two major events.  

First, on August 7th at the Soetart Aquatic Center the PD and Parks and Rec will be hosting National Night Out. this includes the ability for the community to interact with members of the PD and to swim at no charge. There will be a variety of displays of different PD equipment and officers available to answer questions. Also, free food and prizes  Time is 5-8PM with more info at https://www.cityofshawnee.org/news/what_s_new/national_night_out

Another event which has been going on for almost 30 years is the Tour de Shawnee. This bike ride has three distinct courses of different mileages.  A true family event.  This ride also benefits JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). It will be on Sunday, August 26th.

Or how about the free Concert in the Park on 8/10. https://www.cityofshawnee.org/Departments/Parks_Recreation/Special_Events/concert_in_the_park

How about the Mayor's Third Thursdays (8/16) or Quarterly Q&A (8/9)? Maybe she doesn't want folks to interact with the mayor?

Oh, and how she misleads folks. She makes it seem in her newsletter that it was the council's idea to table the public hearing for Bellmont Promenade. No mention of the fact that the developer had requested the tabling.
