Week Ahead for March 20, 2023: New hotel planned on West Main; Regional bodies to get update on how to better run the buses; housing summit on Friday
Each week I write this report and want to write up every single item. The world is complex and my view of journalism is that there’s enough room for many accounts of what the government does at all levels. I believe better outcomes are possible if information can be made available and shared. That’s why I do this every week.
