Below is a message Councilman Shawn O’Connell asked to be shared with the community. Shawn wants to hear from YOU he knows how he got the seat on council and wants to have an idea of what the communities thoughts are on issues so he can include those in his decision making process.
Councilman Elect Shawn O’Connell
Happy Holidays to everyone,
As your new City Councilman, I think it’s important that you are kept informed and are provided a way to comment on important issues.
This is the reason for this email.
Open Council seat needs to be filled.
A) Some options available to the City Council
1) June 2013 Election – cost to be determined – seat will be vacant until June 2013
2) Direct appointment – (council takes qualification letters and after reviewing them, makes an appointment)
3) Committee interview/followed by appointment
Which option would you pick? Why? (I am very much interested in finding out Why you would pick a particular option. This might help me consider something that I might have missed.)
Please feel free to respond via email, phone call, or twitter (see below). Have a safe & wonderful holiday.
