I want to hear from you.
Shortly I will be grading myself and the city on how we did against the goals that I set earlier in the year. I set some very aggressive goals and certainly didn’t accomplish them all. I will also be creating a list of goals for 2011. I would like to hear from you on what you think should be our highest priorities in 2011. Look for a new list of goals around the middle of January.
One of my priorities will be reforming four election related practices that are unfair or substandard for our citizens.
- Allow voters to decide whether to use Ranked Choice Voting.
- Ensure that precincts are not created that divide established neighborhoods.
- Ensure that the rights, challenges, and obligations of every citizen interested in pursuing elected office are equal within the city of Rochester.
- Eliminate the power of the city council to appoint their loyal supporters to openings on the city council.
