Council Meetings: What I Watch For

  • It’s all about me: how many times someone says I want, I think, I prefer, I know, my wife, my in-laws, my kids, my family OR what I have heard from constituents
  • closed mind OR open to varying views
  • Kudos to staff OR a simple thank you
  • Support administration recommendation without question OR question possible omissions
  • Split the vote: seek compromise/consensus OR acknowledge 4-3, 3-4 votes
  • Maintain decorum OR allow unwelcome comments
  • Windbaggery OR refrain from unnecessary speeches
  • Promote charities OR make decisions to remove barriers that prevent people with disabilities from equally participating in the community
  • Decisions based on the interests of a few OR decisions based on the whole community
