Maybe you’re neither but you’re a local resident who has ideas on how to make the town of Vienna better, well, you have two chances to get face to face with people who want to listen. Back in November, the Town announced it hired a new Economic Development Manager, Natalie Monkou. She’s holding 2 pop-up office hours at Caffe Amouri for anyone to attend:
This Wednesday, January 15 at 11 a.m.
Thursday, January 23 at 6 p.m.
I plan on attending the January 15 one and would love to hear what your suggestions will be. I’d also love to meet some of the people who read this weekly column, so please, come introduce yourself to me if you join in!
The Town has asked people to RSVP, but that’s mostly so they know how many people to anticipate and whether it’s a mix of residents or business owners. I think a mix of both is necessary in helping to shape the future of the town.
What do you think the town needs most?

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
