Let's hope our new commission VALUES the input of neighborhood councils and not be dismissive of them.

Where have you been? On several recent major issues they avoided taking the neighborhood council's inputs to heart. Think parking meters and the river drive properties at the 38th street intersection for starters.

Written questions to be submitted in advance of the forum are due by 3 p.m. tomorrow (10/21). Please send them to me at aaron AT weissman DOT com.

All questions will be submitted to the GFHS debate squad, and they will pick the questions that will be asked. Questions from the general public will also be accepted at the event. Four questions will be asked from the Neighborhood Councils and four questions from the public. Each candidate will also have the opportunity to ask one question of his rivals.

Sandra, can you put a post on the front page soliciting questions?
