Captain Rick: The Gilbert Arizona Town Council is set to eliminate study sessions that precede each council meeting. As a viewer of every Gilbert council meeting since 1997, I shared my concern with our council.
A copy of my email to the Gilbert Town Council on May 11, 2013:
Mayor Lewis and Council,
As a viewer of every council meeting and study session televised since 1997…and frequent council commentator, you know I am an avid supporter of council study sessions. They often contain info that is more meaningful and educational than that presented during the ‘show biz’ council meeting.
I know all of you have a busy schedule and your time is precious. Mine is also…so I understand. From council study discussion on 4/30, it sounds like most are in favor of ending the study sessions.
I have one simple request to make that I hope every member of council will honor. Please ensure all staff presentations, that have been a vital part of the study sessions, will become part of the regular council meetings. To me, they are a vital contribution to the process.
I encourage all to consider Ben Cooper’s remarks concerning the probable increased need to postpone council decisions…should more investigation and research be needed.
My ‘Proper Vote’ will always go to those who get it right the first time…not those who were the first to ‘jump on a popular ship headed for nowhere’. I urge all to slow the pace and get it right the first time. We did not elect you to be ‘speed demons’ or ‘show biz artists’. We elected you to represent our great town of Gilbert, Arizona with wisdom.
I welcome your comments, likes, shares and following of my blog! (If not visible, click the red title above)
