Kansas State Senator Kevin Braun hosted a community forum in the Edwardsville Community Center on Saturday, February 8. This was an opportunity for the Senator to update his constituents on activity at the capital as well as to hear concerns from residents.
Also included in this event was an official recognition ceremony for Edwardsville Fire Chief Tim Whitham and Edwardsville Police Sergeant Patrick Johnson. Both officials are well known in the community, particularly for their efforts in organizing and executing the Cram the Cruiser/Cram the Firetruck charity drive, which provides relief and gifts for Edwardsville residents during the holiday season. Both public safety officials received certificates commemorating this recognition.
