I sent an email to our mayor and all of our city representatives Saturday, December 12, 2015.
Here is the text:
Would you support the videotaping and publication on the city web site of special city council meetings?
If so will you take steps to make this happen?
I look forward to your response.
Representatives Svarzbein, Limon, and Acosta replied that very day. They each informed me that the meetings are videotaped and that they support the practice.
Representative Svarzbein showed me how to access them. As it turns out the videos are not linked into the main agenda access site but instead are available through a different web page.
I thank the representatives for their courteous responses.
I would have thought that the others would have at least had someone on their staff respond.
We deserve better
