Trusting and Engaging Residents
I think it is time for residents and city government in Concord to deepen their relationship: this means an exchange of meaningful commitments to each other. Residents should work to be as engaged with city government as they can; the City Council should commit to appointing more resident oversight commissions.
Residents can shape Concord by getting involved. And the needs and preferences of residents should be clearly reflected in City Council deliberations and decision making.
