I attended another positive, constructive Charter Advisory Meeting this morning. Discussion focused on the Board of Aldermen structure (elections, terms, make up, selection of president).
Proportional representation and other changes that could increase participation and representation were discussed. All agreed that increased participation and representation are a top goal for any changes.
The book “The Adapted City” was handed out.
It was agreed that written testimony would be accepted in September and that public hearings would be held after that.
I encourage people to begin the discussion through this site and refine your thinking before submitting written testimony.
What is working well in the current structure?
What changes should be made?
