Are you finding Monday night TV dull? Might I suggest tuning in to NV City council meetings at 6:00 via the city website*. It’s akin to watching CNN but these politics are happening right here in our little city and are affecting our quality of life – every one of us, present and future.
It doesn’t take long to realize that members of our elected council don’t get along well; it soon becomes obvious that there is a concerted effort to prevent the public’s voice from being heard; you’ll get frustrated with the high-falutin’ language used to discuss issues; you may get angry with the constant 4-3 votes in favour of serious changes within our home territory, in spite of large public opposition and you may want to “Boo” loud and clear when the mayor congratulates himself on speeding through another meeting.
City council watching is certainly not dull! You’re either with the powers-that-be or against them but either way next October it’s OUR TURN to take control and have OUR WAY with them —- Election 2018!
So for good entertainment, on the spot education – Watch your city council in action on Monday Nights, form an opinion and , for Heaven’s Sake, Vote next October !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*update: the link to the Council meeting is usually on the front page of the city website: http://www.cnv.org/. It can also be accessed on the Council meeting page here: http://www.cnv.org/your-government/council-meetings
