The Role of a City Council Member

  1. I believe it is a city council member’s job to be open and responsive to citizens.
  2. I believe that it is important for a city council member to do her homework. That is, she should conduct careful and thorough research, consult with experts, and solicit citizen feedback before voting on any issue before council.
  3. I believe that a council member should always vote in the best interests of the city and her citizens.
