TUNE IN TODAY: Election town hall set ahead of Port Arthur parks vote

A Port Arthur Newsmedia joint project with Lamar University for a virtual town hall concerning Port Arthur’s May 1 election is open to the public this afternoon.

The online event is viewable by all live from 3 to 4 p.m. today (March 10).

The event will be shared and open on the newspaper’s and Lamar University Department of Communication and Media’s various Facebook and YouTube pages. It focuses on Port Arthur’s election proposal giving voters the chance to reallocate sales tax funds to improve two of the city’s parks, making them premier parks.

The sites include the city’s largest park, S/Sgt. Lucian Adams Park on 61st Street adjacent to Memorial High School and Rose Hill Park at Woodworth Boulevard and Procter Street.

Many thanks to Mayor Pro Tem Charlotte Moses, who represents Port Arthur Position 7 on the city council, for joining us in the virtual town hall, along with Parks and Recreation Director Chandra Alpough.

The town hall will include a moderator and time for the community to ask questions.
