Add comment on:Mayor Lane Releases History of Community Contacts
Don Lane (posted by Norse)
On Sunday February 19, Mayor Don Lane e-mailed me the following list of meetings he had with groups and individuals in the community in his capacity is Mayor. This is a new and important effort by Lane to make his regime more transparent. Whatever differences I have with Lane (and they are legion), I commend him for doing what no other Mayor of Santa Cruz has done. Admittedly specific names aren't always mentioned, which is important. It sounds like he may not have recorded names when the meetings were held--something that should be done with regularity by all elected officials and by the highly paid department heads as well. Specifically, it would be interesting for Council Member Coonerty and his Council majority to reveal the lobbyist meetings they've had.
