I did not see this cartoon until today. Such a shame. The question is what will we do about it. I went to the presentation by the Chairperson of the Guelph Civic league (put on by MixedMedia) and was truely excited about the concept of a councilor score card. I feel this is especially important in the run up to elections.

For those who did not attend the concept was wonderfully simple: - a survey was sent out to Guelphites. - from the survey they identified 18 core values to those living in Guelph. - they then scored the councilors based on their voting records with either a 1 or a 0. 1 indicated the councilor had voted with the identified value. 0 indicated the opposite.

The result was almost a wholesale change voted into council and a level of accountability which this City could use.

I hope we are able to get beyond the presentation and get a working group together. I'm not an organizer, but want to move beyond enthusiasm to something real. I'm in.
