Prosperity Town Hall Tonight


The Prosperity Roundtable is going to be at the Wallaceburg Legion tonight talking to people about poverty reduction.

Spokesperson Phillip Mock says it’s an extension of the conversation that started at last month’s community barbecue.

“We thought, let’s continue it because we not only want to know what the strengths and challenges are, but we really want to understand what ideas we can put into place together,” Mock says. “My mantra is we’re here for less poor, not better poor.”

Those conversations will continue from 5:30-7:30 at the Legion tonight.

Mock says one in six people, and one in five children live in poverty in Chatham-Kent.

Similar town hall meetings are being held in communities across Chatham-Kent as part of the Prosperity Roundtable’s five-year plan to help the municipality grow and thrive.
