16 Apr 2005
Please look into the censoring of city council minutes at

a. Stenographic records of the public stenographers' machine that
record the debate in our Boston City Council are censored.

b. The brevity of the edited minutes make it too difficult for most
people to understand the transactions, the proceedings of the city

c. There is no cross reference for the docket numbers.

d. Matters are referred to so generally that it is ambiguous what many
items mentioned in the minutes are actually about.

e. The 1) city clerk, the 2) assistant city clerks or
the 3) council staff director are adamant in their denial regarding
the predicament of the too brief council minutes.

f. The city clerk, the assistant city clerks or the council staff
director do not have adequate time, do not make adequate time to
respond to enquiries regarding clarification of the council

g. The city clerk, the assistant city clerks or the council staff
director intimidate people or require that you be ingratiated to
them when enquiries are made.

h. The city clerk, the assistant city clerks or the council staff
director make enquiries very difficult for people interested,
concerned or affected by our city council by not responding in a
welcoming manner and fully to enquiries.

i. The city clerk, once a city councilor who advocated open
government, has turned and closed off access to the full minutes of
our Boston City Council, the records of the stenographic machine,
the records of the the council stenographer(s).

j. Many have experienced a City Hall that is unwelcoming, closed off
to enquiries, intimidates and requires ingratiation to get even
minimal response.
