I'm new in the process but I've been thinking I would get a list of all the elected officials in my county because they all swear an oath of office with hand on bible"... to protect and defend the constitution... " . Then get a list of every elected officials " appointees" like (sheriffs deputies) because they all swear oaths of office also . Do you agree ?
Good idea, however, the InPower leadership does not recommend sending deputies or police officers the NoL.
I like the concept of describing the NoL as being an educational tool. Within a local government there must be a record of reports and subsequent council resolutions endorsing the recommendation in the report. Try to find the city reports with details, supplier, installer, consultant, grant funding sources, etc. Usually in Council Meeting Agendas. But ultimately it is the Mayor and Council (board of directors) that are responsible. Hiding information within reporting is one reason there are more public private partnerships, like grant funding. And there aren't many local governments that ignore an opportunity for outside financial resources rather than raise local taxes.
Thank you Alexandra and Lea. Yes, good idea. Though, since 2 of my utilities are city run, I will be focusing on elected officials and appointees in my city rather than county. With the exclusion of law enforcement.
Thanks for your reply Howser. I agree. Considering the NOL an educational tool, as Lea states, makes it easier to ascertain who should be a recipient by virtue of those needing to be informed. After several hours hunting through city reports, I found nothing. As you say, much can be buried and ultimately it is the mayor’s responsibility. I’m tending toward the mayor at this point. I appreciate your input.
