Goal: Formation of a small group advisory committee
Explanation: This ended up being less formal that I intended, but the processes of accepting feedback from concerned friends and supporters has been very positive. In particular, by communicating my ideas I have been able to understand when an idea needs more explanation, when I need to gather more supporters, and when to just punt.
By empowering and educating supporters, I have been better able to construct messages that connect with the community. In particular we did a great job of rallying support for items like the street tree ordinance, domestic partner registry, and Visitor Bureau discussion.
I give myself a B because I would like to me more proactive in getting feedback.
