Sometimes I wonder if folks know what kind of work their elected officials do on their behalf. To test this thought out, I'm going to start a weekly recap of my Council related activities. I'll pilot this concept for a month. Let me know if you find it useful or interesting and I'll keep it up!
I'll organize my recap into a number of categories, a few of which I've described below:
- Council Business: A list and brief description of formal meetings, motions, bylaws, etc
- Citizen Business: A list and brief description of informal meetings, community events, etc
- Education and Research: I read and study a lot, specifically around topics of sustainable urbanism and transport. This informs my decision making process as an elected official. I'll share links to the articles I've read over the week so you know where I'm getting my information and have the opportunity to read it yourself if you are interested.
These categories will probably change over time, but I think that's a reasonable start. If you have any comments or suggestions, let me know over on Facebook or Twitter.
