To help educate each other ahead of our meeting April 30 when we decide whether to formally support the new City Charter proposed by the Charter Commission proposal, we invite all members to submit a short (250 words or less) comment on one of the major changes. Here’s the list of topics we suggest, though if you have something else you’re passionate about, feel free to speak to that!
- Reducing the size of the board
- Changing to all members elected by all voters, instead of some elected only by residents of their ward
- The addition of 4 members elected at-large without residency requirements
- Term limits
- Neighborhood area councils
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can!
