I had met Shirley Newsome a couple of times before she got up and spoke at the public comment hearing Tuesday evening.

It wasn’t a surprise to me that she was there.

Shirley Newsome is the definition of being involved in her community, and the hearing allowed people to comment on a new plan for selecting residents at Lake Parc Place – two public housing towers right of the lake shore at Oakwood Boulevard.

This new plan would require residents to pass a drug test in order to live there.
