These Are Our Next Steps
What happened to the media & elected officials...hmmm!There’s lots more to come, and it will be communicated via this website www.memphisyouthmanifesto.com, but I want you to know WHICH ELECTED OFFICIALS took the time to attend the initial MYM Meeting, and WHICH LOCAL MEDIA sent representatives to the meeting. Every local (city) elected official received individual notice of the event, including all city council members, all city school board members, and both mayors (city and county), and Congressman Steve Cohen.
