Hastings Mayor-elect Mary Fasbender is asking residents to share their questions, ideas and concerns about the city at a “Chat with Mary” event from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at the American Legion Post, 50 Sibley St. The event is aimed at giving residents an informal opportunity to meet the mayor-elect and offer perspectives on issues. Those unable to attend are encouraged to email her directly at [email protected] Regular community-oriented updates from Fasbender will be posted on her Facebook page at facebook.com/MaryFasbender and her website, maryfasbender.com. Fasbender, a longtime Hastings business owner, will replace Mayor Paul Hicks, who did not seek a fourth term. Fasbender has strong ties to Hastings, where she was raised and has owned a hair salon for 35 years. She has served on several local government committees, including the city’s comprehensive plan committee, public safety commission and charter commission. She is also a co-founder of Gobble Gait, a Thanksgiving Day run that raises money for Hastings Family Service and is now in its 20th year.
