If equity is supposed to mean increasing participation by low-income persons and people of color, this is NOT the way to do it, this week, neither was this, or this. 7 of the 28 meeting this week were announced after the alleged weekly calendar came out Friday afternoon, that’s 25%!!! 5 of the 7 added meetings were held during the day when most working people cannot attend. Good thing neither of these issues affect people who might otherwise be disenfranchised or designed to get input! (major eyeroll)
