Two weeks ago Rich Gordon (of the Board of Supervisors, the governing body for the unincorporated midcoast) held a workshop in Half Moon Bay to get input on setting goals for San Mateo County. It was a high-tech affair with electronic voter handsets and instant results displayed on the big screen.
We need to do more of this sort of thing. Get people together. Talk about shared vales, shared goals. See what we can come up with.
I look at this workshop as a sort of prototype of the sort of thing that would go a long way toward making the coastside a healthier place, politically speaking.
If you missed the workshop but still want to take the survey it is all online.
