I am working on a column for Saturday’s paper on the death of Lisa Marie Melancon.

She was a city code enforcement officer, and a community hero. She worked with police and community activists to clean up blight and crime and was greatly admired.

If you or your community group would like to speak with me about her, please call me at 253-597-8677.

If you would prefer to write a statement about her, please e-mail it to me at kathleen.merryman@thenewstribune.com. Please include your name, your neighborhood and a phone number where I can reach you.

Thank you,

Kits Merryman
