  Help Me Write My Year-end Review and Predictions for 2015
December 20, 2014

It’s that time of year again – this is your chance to weigh in on the best and worst of 2014 and predictions for 2015.
In a tradition that started in 2002, I will present my version, augmented by suggestions from E-FORUM readers, with the 2013 Year End Review - Prediction and Wishes for 2014.
To remind you what I wrote at the beginning of this year.
I am again inviting E-FORUM readers to weigh in with what you consumers of City of Richmond services want 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 e 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.

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.
