How will our candidates serve/make decisions on City committees?

Rommel still takes part in committee discussions and debate, just as any councillor. This is the same for in-camera (private) sessions, which are private generally because they include discussion of a privacy concern or a business’ pecuniary interest requiring discretion. IserveU is just one more tool in Rommel’s skillset that brings in additional feedback and diverse opinions, and can influence his vote on regular motions and Council items. Rommel’s opinions are still his own, and he has no trouble voicing them on committees of Council, or in in-camera meetings. 

 

IserveU is also working to make website tools that will allow Yellowknifers to, for instance, allocate funding recommendations for grant applicants, and have input on the 2017 budgeting process, which will bring more decisions into the public sphere in the coming years.
