to contact the city council to push through what we need.

Andrew is on board and we should use the connection available, is happy to stand up and talk about things that we want and try to push through.

– When we have an issue we need we need to bring it up and involve others

– Speaking out against others – Areas have felt ignored in the past and areas where not represented. There was a representative for teachers, but did not live in the area so certain areas were not represented. Certain areas do not have a bigger pull than others. We have a good representation of this area right now. Advocacy is a big thing. Andrew has a class that he can put on to help with us being advocates. Certain areas expect more when they have more. Different areas have different expectations.

– Individuals are powerful, groups are really not, letters not effective



– ACC classes are too big


Hallie Wilkens moves to adjourn the meeting

Sarah Heaton seconds adjournment.
