Public input not wanted

At the Tuesday, July 11, 2017 meeting of city council the city representative from district one spoke about an agenda item that he had placed on the agenda that asked for a council resolution supporting the Paris Climate Accord.

The representative used an extensive slide presentation to support his argument.

Unfortunately the slide presentation was not included with the backup material relating to the item.

City council’s own rules require that these presentations be made available to the city clerk when an item is placed on the agenda.  The purpose of the rule is to allow members of the public as well as other city representatives to review the material and prepare comments that they may wish to make about the presentation.

Failure to include the material is one way to stifle opposing views.

We deserve better

    If the good rep would take time to drive the streets in District 1, the horrific condition of the streets might knock a little sense into him. Some of the worst streets in the city are in his district. I’m not opposed to discussion about the Paris Climate Accord, but it’s a matter of priorities and his are out of whack.

    This a man who not only created but now is implementing:
    “El Paso”
    “You wouldn’t believe it”.
    Are you surprized he doesn’t know when we are in terrible financial trouble, doesn’t know procedures, grandstanding for an unenforceable accord of which ELPs opinion means less than hill o beans, in keeping with his tenure of “no accomplishments”? Al Weisenberger, couldn’t u have tried harder? ( I think Joyce paid him for slogan which caused many snickers around the state and was quickly discarded).

    It would be better if the district 1 representative were as concerned about the road and traffic conditions in district 1 as he is about climate change. He can actually do something about the former.
