Is PUD on the list?

I am interested in observing the Sedro-Woolley city council and perhaps the School District? It may depend on how many meetings involved.
Brenda Cunningham

Is it possible to see what meetings are already covered? I am interested in several, but would be glad to not attend one if someone else was attending.
Kathy Reim Sedro-Woolley, WA

It would be good to include our communities in Eastern Skagit.

I am interested in Burlington School District. Trying to find their schedule on my phone here, but am not finding it.

Is it a protocol that the observer only observes, but does not speak at the meeting? Can the observer ask questions at a meeting?
Marcia, Doris

This is a good point-- that the meeting can be more efficient, or will the people meeting be more succinct... when the committee knows it is being "observed"??

Go to Government meetings in the SVH - they just recently posted school board meetings.

Library boards also play an important role. We can use these opportunities to engage new people.

I am interested in School Board meetings, especially Burlington.

The port of Skagit County is a critical entity.
Brenda Cunningham

The city council meetings are recorded too - so people can observe later.
Kathy Reim Sedro-Woolley, WA
49:02
Do we share our evaluation sheet? I think it would be interesting if that is transparent too?
Marcia, Doris
49:10
I know the meetings that are recorded can be viewed later, but I think if at all possible it is good to observe/attend "in person" because LWV presence will inhance the meeting.

In my experience the minority opinion option does much to increase credibility and trust in governance. We could advocate for it in every group.

If you are on social media or have friends who share an interest in a topic, you can make information about upcoming bill as a courtesy to them. I try to keep our Facebook page a lively place but I also use my personal page at times.
Brenda Cunningham

Maybe this group would be interested in a training in use of Take Action Network, an Indivisible product for tracking bills of interest and sending emails.

Since the online messaging to legislators is all electronic, why would the feedback from constituents NOT be aggregated so all in the legislature to refer to?

FYI, I joined the LWV action committee on public banking.... there is now a bill on that which we will be tracking.
