Does the city listen to public input?

  1. Yes, I feel my input matters.
  2. More often than not.
  3. Sometimes.
  4. No.
  5. Too much so; officials are too often swayed by those who show up at city hall.
  6. There are times when facts matter more than “opinions.” City officials act accordingly and I value that.
  7. I don’t know.
  8. Other.

They might listen, but far too often it goes in one ear & directly out the other. A few of them up on council are quite good at talking the talk, NOT walking the walk.

lwmjr -- Is not "talking the talk, but not walking the walk" the natural and normal characteristic of ANY so-to-speak "successful" elected Pol ? ?

They have already MADE UP THEIR MIND " on pre-briefed, new, controversial issue prior to disclosure to the public. They promoted themselves as being the " voice of the people " but instead have become jaded and opinionated . They look at the voters as " uninformed idiots". They have sadly become " The Bully Pulpit".

The City Council seems to listen to the City manager and the individual who controls the budget.Their decisions are not transparent and they are not fiscally responsible.

Robert01 summed it up beautifully - "Their decisions are NOT transparent and they are NOT fiscally responsible."
