Open Government - More Victories
City Council approved my proposal to televise debates between candidates for Mayor and City Council starting with next year's elections. It will be on the city channel and moderated by the League of Women Voters. As President of
CONA (Council of Neighborhood Associations), I twice attempted to get Council
to agreed to provide this opportunity to citizens. Both prior attempts failed.
Dec 4th - City Council Committees dates, times, places, agendas and backup
material are now on the City website. This was a request of mine because it is in committee where ideas to change things first have to go. Previously, none of these meetings were on the website so people did not even know when issues were coming up. Now, if you go the website and look under City Council and then go to meetings and agendas, you can get this information.
