Leading? What’s that? Lead me to your meat.
It’s a few months away, the council will pick their new leadership in May 2017, but it is worth the discussion.
Under Rolfing and Kiley’s leadership, all we have seen is a pushing of the mayor’s agenda, and not the councils’ and a severe lack of transparency. Normally the Vice-Chair (Kiley) would take the chair position in normal progression, but I think after his performance over the last year, it’s time to shake things up a bit and remove him from a leadership role.
I would like to see Erickson as Chair and either Starr or Neitzert as vice-chair. I think it is time for the council to start pushing their own agenda, and I think the new council is ready for that challenge, besides, as I said Tuesday night, it is their jobs.
