I promise you that  there will continue to be:

1. A more open, and fully accountable city government that will continue to disclose to you all of the reasons for the decisions made.

2. A full disclosure of all documents, records, discussions and positions, that are not of a privileged nature, prior to the council vote.

3. A full opportunity for you to express yourself at all council meetings even if it takes more than the present three minute limitation.

4. A direct, specific and concise addressing of your concerns that will include, where necessary, the documents necessary to provide a complete answer.
