The City of Union City is hosting the 2020 State of the City address delivered by Mayor Carol Dutra-Vernaci on October 5 at 6:30 pm. Due to the ongoing shelter-in-place and global pandemic, the event will be streamed virtually on the city’s BlueJeans teleconferencing platform and on Facebook Live.
In the Mayor’s address, she will look back on the City’s past year accomplishments and challenges and then introduce the City Council’s priorities moving forward.
A special feature of the event will be the presentation of the top three winning entries of the City’s “Why I Wear A Mask” youth photography contest. This contest started back in August to help raise awareness within the youth community about the importance of wearing a mask. Union City’s own independent photographer and educator, Don Feria, whose work has been commissioned by Nike, Stanford University, Discovery Channel and the MacArthur Foundation, judged the photo entries and selected three winning entries. In addition to the photos being displayed during the State of the City Address, the winners will receive a cash prize for their efforts in being socially responsible citizens of the community.
There will be opportunities for viewers to ask questions in a live Q&A segment. Head to the City of Union City’s Facebook page to RSVP for event. Or, just join us using one of the virtual options below:
