Mayor Mack's Book Club

Since I’ve been elected Mayor, I’ve been doing a lot of reading on leadership and serving others. So that got me to thinking, this could be a great thing to share with the City Council and city staff.  And then I thought, this would be a great thing to share with the citizens of Longview.  After the success of the previous selections, I wanted to follow up with a book that would have just as muchThe Shark and the Goldfish impact.  The new selection is called "The Shark and the Goldfish" by Jon Gordon and I know you'll enjoy it.    

We are going to discuss the book in a Facebook group titled “Mayor Mack’s Book Club”.  I would hope that you all would read the book and help our city become a better city.  This will give us a way to encourage and engage each other. 

I spoken with the local book stores in town – Barron’s, Books-A-Million and Hastings – who will be carrying the books and can order them.  I encourage you to shop local and buy the books from our local stores and support those who support Longview.  The Longview Public Library has also ordered paper copies of the book as well as digital copies. 

Enjoy the current selection and join the discussion o

n Facebook!
