What’s Seattle’s greatest challenge? Group says McGinn wants to know
Could this be a hint of Mayor-Elect Mike McGinn’s governing style? A group concerned about repealing the head tax sent out this Facebook message. Interesting approach by McGinn.
Hello Head Taxers,
Well, it appears as if the Council has gone and done it, repealed the so called “Head Tax.” You can read the latest here.
But on to the future. We were fortunate enough to be asked by Michael McGinn to get your thoughts on his transition into being our next Mayor. Michael’s approach is revolutionary, which should be no surprise. Rather than forming a blue ribbon transition committee he is asking people to fan out to gather answers to the questions below.
Would you please take a minute to answer these questions in about 50 words?
Two other things: we need the answers by the end of the day Friday, November 20th and please send your thoughts (or questions) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may get hit up for input more than once. Send your responses to one place.
Here are the three questions we ask you to find answers for:
1. How do we build the strongest possible team to achieve the policy objectives and values set forth by the campaign (grass roots community involvement, transparency and neighborhood focus)?
2. How do we build public trust in the new administration?
3. What do you view as the incoming administration and the city’s greatest challenge – what should we do first out of the gate?
Include your name (e-mail addresses don’t always correspond with addresses) if you like. This is a great opportunity to get your thoughts to Michael. There will be three town halls scheduled for the end of the month built on your input.
Thanks for all you do!
