On #WorldPoetryDay we’re #NovatoProud of Kirsten Jones Neff - writer, filmmaker and poet.
Kirsten is the 2019 editor of the Marin Poetry Center Anthology and won the Starting Gate Prize for her debut collection of poetry, 'When the House is Quiet'.
Kirsten notes that if she could she would “prescribe everyone a daily dose of poetry.” Novato.org/NovatoProud
"Call if you can, text if you can't." You now have the option to text emergencies to 9-1-1 here in Novato, as well as in San Rafael & Fairfax. Texting is not a replacement for calling 911, but it is there if you need it. Use only simple text, avoid emojis or abbreviations. Please share this with anyone you know who could benefit from this option. More details are in the Novato Police Department post below. #staysafenovato
We want your input! The City is currently engaged in a process to change the way that City Councilmembers are elected by transitioning from an at-large to a district-based election system.
