Advisory Committee Member Profiles

"If we can meet people with empathy, then we can get underneath the problems, and we're more likely to find solutions."
"Public engagement is a way to re-engage the folks that we serve."
"If it's done right, typically all parties will find some wins and some challenges."
"We assume that the City has already made up its mind. But when you engage, you see that it's a process that we can actually contribute to."
"There are not really a lot of champions of the public interest. But you need people who have a passion for occupying that place"
