The life of a city councilor involves receiving (and responding to) a lot of constituent email. I want to share something that was sent to me recently:
“I must say that as a local for many years no one has kept us more informed as to what is going on in our city than you have. You have set the bar very high for elected officials. Let’s hope that someone will come forward and provide the residents the linkage to the city government issues like you have.”
How did I respond, you may wonder?
“Haha thanks! I’ll keep blogging come January but with even MORE transparency if that’s possible, looking at city hall from a different lens. I know lots of council and city hall folks read along…”
I won’t name names but they know who they are. Everyone who receives an automated email when a new blog post is published is on a list that MailChimp powers but that I can see. Lots of current and former elected officials along with many city hall staff are always curious what I pen next.
My brain is full of topics to write about. Depending on what I hear people talk about or what officials may say publicly will depend what comes out of my literary closet. Stay tuned.
