Dear Neighbors, 

Between yesterday and today, I received many emails and phone calls from you regarding a recent shooting that happened in District 12 in the 2800 block of Commercial Avenue. 

The amount of gun violence in Madison that is plaguing our streets this year - we have never seen this before, and it is deeply concerning to me. There are several properties in Eken Park and on the Northside where drug-related activities have been happening in recent years. The MPD has been aware of those locations and activities; they are working hard to address the violence. 

In light of the recent shooting in District 12, I am hosting a public safety meeting with Captain Brian Ackeret of the MPD to provide us details about the MPD's plans and strategies to protect Madisonians' lives and to address your questions and concerns. 

The virtual meeting is this Thursday from 6 PM to 7 PM. To join the Zoom meeting please register via the link below. 

When: Thursday Aug 27, 2020 06:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada) 

Register in advance for this meeting: 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Also, I will encourage you, if you can, to send me your questions in advance of the meeting.
