Chattanooga Mayor-elect Andy Berke will hold the first of a series of forums seeking public input on city issues on March 21, according to a news release.

The forum will be held from 5-7 p.m. at McGilvray Gymnasium at Tennessee Temple University.

The topic is public safety, the release stated.

“Our streets are too dangerous,” Berke said in the release. “We must have a comprehensive plan to reduce the amount of crime in our community.”

Future events will be centered on education and economic development.

“A central part of making us safer is community involvement. Whether it is through these meetings, neighborhood discussions, or a conversation on social media, our citizen’s ideas, concerns, and participation will be central to my administration,” Berke said.

Berke also will participate in an “Ask-Andy” Twitter hour from 5-6 p.m. March 20. Participate by tweeting @AndyBerke or use #RenewSAFETY.
