Arizona Edition - KAWC recently kicked off a series of events designed to bring citizens together with the civic leaders and local experts on topics that impact and shape the community. They’re called Spirited Discussions and are hopefully a relaxing and enlightening civic engagement experience for those that attend.

KAWC hopes to conduct Spirited Discussions every couple of months.

The inaugural KAWC Spirited Discussions forum will feature newly elected Mayor of Yuma, Douglas J. Nicholls, at 5 pm on Thursday, February 13, at River City Grill, 600 W 3rd Street.  Mayor Nicholls will be discussing his priorities for the city and his early observations since taking office. 

River City Grill, the host venue for the first Spirited Discussions forum, will have a cash bar available, as well as appetizers, in keeping with the relaxed nature of the event.
