Mayor Swearengin to Launch ‘Open Door Day’ Program
03/26/2009

Mayor Ashley Swearengin today announced the launch of the Mayor’s Open Door Day program, an opportunity for citizens to meet directly with the Mayor to discuss issues or concerns.

The first Open Door Day will be held at Fresno City Hall today from 1 to 4 p.m.

“The Open Door Day program is an important part of my commitment to making City Hall as open and accessible as possible to the public,” Mayor Swearengin said. “I’m looking forward to meeting with our residents to discuss their concerns, ideas, and any input they might provide on how we can improve our city.”

Mayor Swearengin will hold an Open Door Day on the third Tuesday of each month from 1 to 4 p.m. at Fresno City Hall.

Requests for Open Door Day meetings must be made in advance and are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Meetings will be scheduled at 25-minute intervals.

To request an Open Door Day with Mayor Swearengin, community members should fill out this online form on the City of Fresno’s Web Site. A confirmation will be sent.

People interested in scheduling an Open Door Day should note that due to the number of requests expected to be received, the appointment could be scheduled several months after the request is received.
