tonight’s cville city council agenda:
we have to see and dismantle patterns of segregation. the community will is here - look at chambers, at petitions. the city has to listen & act.
says he emailed all of council, only heather hill replied to him.
“if the city gave as little as a $400 grant” to someone it’s considered supported housing — this counts toward the goal.
jeff fogel walked in right as his name was called 🌹
tell ‘em jeff
addresses 3/5 of council’s choice not to increase real estate tax for FY19
maybe the trad workers will book a block of rooms at the new hotel on cherry & ridge? is they the tourism you’re looking for?
“make a commitment to actively respond to the public.”
wants to give mayor power to extend 3min to 5min when warranted.
cites passage prohibiting discussion of motives of councilors - this is concerning.
the system relies on “punishment as a means of resolving disputes”
“people are being punished simply because other people don’t like what they are doing”
stop punishing dissent & hear the people ✊
organize, comrade ✊
honestly what difference does it make if the name on the list belongs to the speaker?!
the only ADDITIONS are one (1) more speaker and the optional 2 min response from council for speaker.
sounds about damn right.
maybe i yelled “tell that to heather’s mom” at her as she walked out. maybe she deserved it.
(please don’t require fucking ID to speak at meetings. this is wild.)
mayor walker moves to strike that.
a comrade whispers that she’s previously ceded time to nikuyah so she could speak
votes: bellamy, hill, and signer vote no. galvin and walker vote yes. it fails. what is wes doing?!
from my notes from the budget retreat:
folks in the gallery with affordable housing signs are waving them, making a loud rustling ✊
kathy gets him to agree to 8 units for 15 years... but at 80% AMI. that’s over $60,000k/year for a family of 4 in cville. that’s not low income housing.
aaaand then he got UP IN mary carey’s face.
i’m aware of the statute. if the chair of the meeting would like to have me removed, we’ll talk.
