The Mordecai CAC is the Mordecai Community Action Coalition. We are a coalition of multiple neighborhoods working together to provide ways for citizens to share information, meet each other, and take action in our community. Neighborhoods include: Pilot Mill, Oakdale, Mordecai, East Mordecai, North Person/Blount, Cotton Mill, Capitol Park, and 1/2 of Oakwood.

CO-CHAIR: We desperately need a new MCAC co-chair to be elected in January 2022. This person will serve a two year term and be responsible for working with a partner to plan meeting agendas and lead the direction of the CAC. If you are interested or know of a neighbor that would be good for the job, we'd love to talk to you.

Please contact Dana Deaton and Merrilee Jacobson at chair@mordecaicac.org or via messenger ASAP.
