On January 31, you’ll enjoy an evening presentation on the nuts and bolts of how the City works. Guest speaker Tracy Rosenberg, executive director of "Media Alliance"<+https://media-alliance.org/> will provide an overview of the city structure––from elected officials to city manager to committees and commissions––as well as the legislation flow. Who can introduce legislation and how does a member of public use the “bully pulpit” to get the assistance from a Council member to do so? Also covered will be a review of good governance regulations such as the Brown Act and what tools are available to make public meetings transparent and more productive. Did you know that Staff Reports provide context for understanding seemingly obtuse committee meetings? This is a must-attend meeting if you want to roll up your sleeves and get more involved in local government!   RSVP and more information: Gen Katz at gen [at] metron.com
