Yes, I was referring to Tracy. I looked @ the 4 Virginia Beach Hens FB page and see the group has some positive fwd momentum.
My only advice is to keep Tracy out of the City Chambers during the group's initial session w/ City Council. While there is nothing illegal in her being there, her past "run-ins" w/ city government and pending legal challenges do not present a favorable first impression for the group. It would be best for the group NOT to mention she is in fact a member of the group. Again, there is nothing saying she can't be affiliated w/ the group, however image is everything while the group tries to go from the crawl to the walk stage.
Simply present the group's proposal, cite Chesapeake as the most recent shiny example of open-minded and civic oriented govt, along w/ a few other similar sized cities, and debunk a few of the common myths of city chicken keeping. Short, sweet, to the point.
Most of the folks on the council have never stepped foot on a farm and did a real honest day's work working the land.
