“East Ward Update,” a new quarterly television program in which East Ward Council Member Derwin Montgomery highlights events and issues of interest to citizens in the East Ward, is now showing on WSTV 13, the Government Channel on TimeWarner cable channel 13 and AT&T U-Verse channel 99.
The first edition features Montgomery and city officials discussing the city’s Small Business Loan program, community policing, and the Small Business Plan Competition being conducted by the Community and Business Development Department.
“The East Ward Update is yet another opportunity for citizens to be engaged and informed about what's happening in their city government,” Montgomery said. “Hearing directly from their city council member helps bridge the divide between City Hall and the communities that makes us who we are."
East Ward Update is running this month on Mondays at noon, Tuesdays at 4 p.m., Wednesdays at 1 p.m., Thursdays at 9 p.m., Fridays at 10 a.m., Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m.
