It is that time again- the ANC General Membership will meet this coming Wednesday, July 27 at 7-9 PM, 721 Barton Springs Road. As usual, we have a sizzling program planned for you! In order to promote “healing” within our community and nationwide, our first speaker, Saundra Kirk will give a talk entitled, “Embracing America’s Melting Pot.” With “Back to School” just around the corner, Paul Cruz, the Superintendent of AUstin Independent School District will give us an update on AISD. Greg Guernsey from the City’s Planning and Zoning Department will also be there with an update on CodeNEXT, especially important with so many CodeNEXT staff members who have taken jobs elsewhere.
We have the great fortune to have Bill Aleshire, well-known in the community as a Government Transparency Activist, to speak about government transparency. ANC Member,James Bilodeau, will present an internal ANC Executive Committee project/product, the ANC Scorecard that rates all of the Council Members and Mayor for their voting records (this is particularly important since the City does not have an electronic document with these votes available!). Well-known attorney, Fred Lewis, will give his perspective on the CodeNEXT Affordability Prescription Paper, and Our CAG (Citizen’s Advisory Group for CodeNEXT) member of the month will be Lauren Ice, an attorney for SOS with environmental expertise.
I look forward to seeing all of you at the July ANC General Membership Meeting on Wednesday, July 27! Our complete agenda will be posted on our website.
