The Atlanta City Council continues its war on the public. Most recently the Council voted to limit public comment delegations to a maximum of ten minutes per delegation – no matter how complex the issue. The former limit was sixteen minutes. The Council also voted to restrict former elected officials–who previously had no time limit–to six minutes per person.
In these remarks before the Committee on Council, Cardinale expressed his profound disgust and disappointment at the Council’s act of trampling on democracy. Only Councilman Michael Julian Bond (Post 1-at-large) opposed the measure.
The people of Atlanta require more friends on the Atlanta City Council, like Cardinale, who will always respect the public and value public input.
