February 8, 2022 -- Mayor Matt chats with Brittany Coon, Public Outreach Coordinator from Knox DD and Sherrie Simmons, Provider Relations Manager for Knox DD regarding a new program aimed to help individuals learn how to cook simple recipes through videos.
Easy Eats is a cooking show that highlights affordable, easy to follow and tasty dishes that anyone can make! It was made to help people with disabilities learn to be comfortable in their kitchens and learn easy ways to cook at home, but is for anyone that wants to learn a new recipe. The team started with a few of Knox DD staff hosting the cooking show, then grew to people with disabilities and community members.
Through our Healthy Living Initiative, it is our hope that we can help make the healthy choice the easy choice and help people understand how to balance everything in their lives to live a wonderful and healthy life!
January 5, 2022 -- Wrapping the series on domestic violence awareness, City of Mount Vernon Law Director, Rob Broeren, Assistant Law Director, Brittany Whitney, and Client Advocate, Ellie Cline discuss the City's role in handling domestic violence cases, identify how the City Law Office staff are helping victims become survivors, and outline how their work with other agencies in the community are helping to protect those who are affected by domestic violence, stalking and intimidation, and those who feel powerless in those kinds of situations.
"If you see something, say something," says our panelists. You don't have to be the victim to report the violence. If the situation warrants immediate attention and is an emergency, call 9-1-1. Those who aren't sure may reach out to the City's Law Office at (740) 393-9562.
