Here is the resolution I plan to introduce tonight addressing a lack of diversity and inclusivity on citizen boards. I deserve basically zero credit for the attached document as I very much wanted this to come from the community and not the politicians that let this get out of hand.
Assuming we get a second we will have a vote on this tonight. I want to hammer home again just how angry I am that the Mayor and council would put an unqualified paid lobbyist on a commission while ignoring so many qualified but underrepresented women. Further we still have taken no action when it was learned that many companies competing for a public contract to design public spaces are actually paying that lobbyist.
My personal thanks to Council member Campion and community champion Dave Beal (and others I likely don’t know were involved) for helping to get this ready to go.
