Full Text of Speech to City Council on 12-3

Even though Mayor Bryant allowed three minutes per speaker (to her credit), I was unable to finish the speech I prepared, so I reprint it here since I've heard some favorable comment. Well, I'd actually be posting it even if I hadn't. Folks should be aware that if you want to make a presentation for a group, you should inform the Mayor (we'll see if Robinson tries to shut this down) a few days in advance, and you should be able to get 5 minutes. At least such was the practice in the past. Also Micah Posner has agreed to give anyone wanting to speak on a Consent Agenda item 2 minutes--best, I guess, to contact him in advance, though that shouldn't be necessary.

Read and respond!
