On Tuesday, August 14, the Chesapeake City Council voted to send the "hen issue" to the Planning Commission for a recommendation. Dozens of Chicken Activists attended the event, as reported in the Chesapeake Clipper. Eight of us addressed Council with prepared remarks.
On Tuesday, October 9, Patricia Foreman, the author of City Chicks, will support our cause by making Chesapeake a stop on her East Coast Book Tour. Pat graduated from Indiana University with a Masters of Public Administration. She went on to graduate school and received her BSC both from Indiana, and then from Purdue University, where she majored in Animal Science, Genetics and Nutrition. She is both an author and licensed pharmacist. I've been told her lectures are fascinating.
This event is expected to sell out quickly, so get your tickets at http://citychicksinchesapeake.eventbrite.com/ while you still can!
