In 2018 I have followed a number of City Council meetings
including the BPS budget meetings, most Boston School
Committee meetings, and the education budget process in the state.
I have been thinking a lot
about the viability of the proposals that I create, asking:
- Does this idea solve a
- Would this idea have
enough support to move forward?
- Can it be funded?
- Is it ethical?
- Is it reasonably simple
to set up?
The other area that I have been working on is researching
what happens in our state, and other states regarding public
Also I am learning how to find
out if a law is already in use and what can be legislated and
what can not.
I thank New Urban Mechanics, City Councilor at large
Annissa Essaibi-George and State Senator William Brownsberger
for helpful advice and guidance in this process of learning
how to turn ideas into actions.
