'Town Meeting with Youth'
Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 3, 2003]  Patrick O'Neill came before the Lincoln City Council to invite council members and city officials to a gathering with youth. O'Neill, a Logan County Board member, serves on the mayor's Commission for Youth.

O'Neill and another citizen interested in our youth, Shawn Taylor, discussed the need to hear what our youth are interested in talking about. Taylor will be reserving Logan Lanes for the "Town Meeting with Youth" from 6 to 7:30 this Saturday evening.

O'Neill said he used to take a two- to three-mile walk every day and would talk to youth during that time. Since he has been on the county board he hasn't had that time or connection. He sees setting a time to meet with youth as a means of getting to know what they are thinking and need. He doesn't see it as a time to preach to them but to talk. He hopes other adults will come out to listen and connect too.

O'Neill is contacting schools to get the word out to youth this week. He hopes there will be a great turnout of youth and officials. All community leaders are welcome to come join in the talk time -- the more the better, O'Neill says.
