Mayor Ritter said, “In an effort to further increase community engagement and conversation I welcome residents to join me for lunch on June 9th where we can break bread together to discuss issues of importance to Chatham Township. These informal quarterly gatherings will offer residents another opportunity to share their ideas on how together we can continue to ‘Build a Better Chatham.’ I look forward to an afternoon of engaging conversation and welcome comments, thoughts, and ideas as well via email if residents are unable to attend.”
