|Richmond Will Be Heaven in 2007?
December 23, 2006
For several years, I have prepared detailed
year-end evaluations of City of Richmond services, problems challenges
and wishes. Originally, these were conveyed only to my City Council
colleagues and the city manager as a way of providing input into the
annual city manager performance evaluation and establishing my
priorities and legislative objectives for the coming year.
At the end of 2002, I shared one of these priorities on the E-FORUM in
Following 2003, I tried to be whimsical and authoredOut With The Old – In With The New, E-FORUM, January 1, 2004, providing a number of awards and multiple choice predictions. Remarkably, several of the predictions had choices that were dead on.
After 2004, I decided to expand the New Year’s Day E-FORUM,
At the beginning of 2006, I circulatedWhat Can We Fix in 2006? January 1, 2006.
I am again inviting E-FORUM readers to weigh in with what you consumers of City of Richmond services want review 2006 to say about what works and what doesn’t, who works and who doesn’t, and what will work and what won’t. Information provided is guaranteed to be treated with complete confidentiality. Responses from City staff are welcome. Some suggestions include:
Best and worst City departments and managers – and why.
City employees who have distinguished themselves by superior service, ideas, leadership or deeds.
Organizations that have made Richmond a better place, and how.
Best and worst of what has happened in Richmond this year that is connected with the City.
Best and worst development projects.
Predictions for the coming year.
