admin Mayor's Office, News

HAMMOND, IN. – Hammond Mayor Thomas M. McDermott, Jr. has rescheduled the February 24, 2016 Mayor’s Night Out in the 5th District that was canceled due to a snow storm.

The new date will be Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at Gavit MS/HS, 1670 – 175th Street from 6:30pm until 8:30pm.

The Mayor’s Night Out Program was initiated by Mayor McDermott in 2004 when it was originally called The Mayor’s Night IN and The Mayor’s Night Out. This program invites residents to join Mayor and all of his administration to come out and present questions and concerns about issues of the day. He was ahead of the curve when he initiated the Mayor’s Night Out Program. Now, everyone refers to these types of live questions from the audience as Town Hall Meetings. “No one was doing this at that time. It was, and still is, the best way for residents to get direct access to their local government, at no cost to them. While the program has evolved over the years, I am very proud of it. It makes constituents feel like their Mayor and his staff is accessible and accountable to the public,” says McDermott.
