How to open the city council in Boston.
24 Apr 2004
Cheryl Rankin and Ann Hess are responsible for the city council
of Boston's rules to maximize citizen input into the legislative
process. But as receptionist, Cheryl Rankin will be dismissive
with your interests and concerns. As staff director, Ann Hess
will deflect you from the public process.
Our city needs better people at the city council to welcome
and ensure your interests and concerns brought to the council are effectively put into the mix.

Regrettably, we can not rely on the current so called receptionist
and so called staff director.
Creating a privileged class of interested parties
that violated sunshine open government principles.
