Mayor Dan Clodfelter met with residents of the South Charlotte Ballantyne Area at our June meeting.

After a very brief introduction he spent over an hour taking questions and providing insight and his thoughts on them. He was assisted by our local District 7 City Council Representative, Ed Driggs on some of the questions.

Thank your Mayor Clodfelter & Representative Ed Driggs and a special thanks to the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge

for their hospitality and to the leadership of the Ballantyne Chapter of the Chamber of Commerce
