My appointment to the Planning Commission
If you want to watch the 30 minutes from last night’s City Council Meeting concerning my appointment to the Planning Commission, which passed unanimously, the video is linked above. I present it here unedited, including the comments from several residents who spoke in opposition to my appointment. Transparency dictates taking the good with the bad, in my view, and if I am to be fortunate enough to have an entire agenda item devoted to myself and my own part in the city’s political process, it is only fair to note that my appointment was not without its detractors.
Regardless, I am honored and gratified to have been successfully appointed, and I look forward to going to work at the upcoming July meeting. I have been reviewing the zoning ordinance, and I have taken in some of the recent meetings on video in preparation for my new role. I hope to fully live up to council’s expectations for my performance on this important commission.
In regard to the comments made at the meeting itself, I have some thoughts and reflection on that as well. If you are interested, head on over to my other blog.
