A dozen of the city's most well-known political and neighborhood activists gathered at the Old Court and the brainstorming began: How can the city provide more equitable representation to all 105,000 residents while increasing voter participation?Read the article before it goes away.♠
One person wrote to tell me that my idea is bad because "A few groups organized could completely dominate the election." I tend to think it will settle out and not allow someone to round up a few voters to win a seat. This person does favor the plan we voted on last year, which had been put forward by Dr Victoria Fahlberg.
This is the time to bring forward ideas. Jack Mitchell and Victoria Fahlberg would like to hear from you. If you need a venue, comment here or send me an EMail, which I will forward for you. (crk at theworld dot com)
