For information respond to this email or call Judy Timmel at 601-6521

Special note from Mayor West to RULE supporters:  Please note two dates for City Council items of interest...respond directly to Jennifer West

Some upcoming items to talk about at RULE:

Oct. 16 will have a few things of interest on the agenda: 
  • Ken Bukowski's EPOA ballot initiative for a study session at 6:30 -7:15. 
  • Another item is to talk about the committee structure at the city: 
  1. council appointments to the committees (potentially changing from 2 council members to one -- there are too many meetings for us!)
  2. committee make up, possibly including more residents/business reps on committees, and I have placed (as part of that discussion) an item about 
  3. changing the way mayor is selected (top vote getter in election becomes mayor 2 years after election and for 2 years)
  4. moving elections to even years (higher turn out). 
I would be very interested to see what RULE folks think about these issues. it would be easiest for me to talk with you about this, or you can wait until I write up my thoughts... but that is not likely to happen before Sat. I am sorry that I cannot attend as I am on a panel at UC Berkeley.

Note from Judy:  Jac Asher has informed us that at this meeting she will bring up a reconsideration of the approval of the Parkside development plan to remove 33 trees

Nov. 6 will have the next trees study session at 6:30-7:15.
