Planning Commission dedicates meeting attire
Lori Landry, a dedicated public servant of 14 years in the Mt. Juliet community, has had a long, tough battle with breast cancer and has served many years on the Mt. Juliet Planning Commission as Vice Chairperson.
The Mt. Juliet Planning Commission dressed in pink last Thursday evening in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Planning Commission-Vice Chairperson, Lori Landry.
Commission members reminded the community to “Think Pink” and keep in mind of those who are fighting breast cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Planning Commission Chairman, Luke Winchester, opened the meeting last Thursday evening with special comments regarding Ms. Landry.
“A lot of us are in pink out of recognition of someone who has dedicatedly served our community,” said Winchester. “We want to let her and her family know that our thoughts and prayers remain with her and we wish only the best for all.”
“I have worked directly by Ms. Lori Landry for a long period of time. She has served tirelessly in her role until she felt like she could no longer fill the commitment,” said Winchester.
The Chairman continued, “Lori has been a dedicated public servant to the community of Mt. Juliet because she believed in this community. She helped shape our Providence area from its beginning to what it is now and so many other developments here in Mt. Juliet and we have been privileged to serve with her.”
Landry, who has been fighting breast cancer, has served in her role on the planning commission until she was physically unable to serve and attend meetings.
