Time For Coconino County To Stream And Post Their Meetings
By Elisha Dorfsmith
I have been asked by a couple people why I have not been as active on my blog as I used to be. For those who don’t know, I was recently elected president of the Flagstaff Liberty Alliance and that is where I have been focusing a lot of my writing energy.
Flagstaff Liberty Alliance has a blog with lots of articles written by myself and other FLA members. It can be found here:
One of the issues we have focused on in that blog is County transparency.
At the January Flagstaff Liberty Alliance meeting, the guest speaker was Coconino County Supervisor Art Babbott. During the discussion, someone asked Supervisor Babbott about the possibility of streaming and posting County Board meetings to the County website in the same way the City of Flagstaff posts their meetings.
Since Coconino County covers such a large area, and since many County meetings are held in the middle of the day on a Tuesday, many people have a very difficult time making it to the meetings.
I have been advocating for transparency and openness on this blog for a very long time and I want to encourage everyone reading this to contact the County and encourage them to stream and post their meetings.
Making meetings more accessible and open to the public is common sense and something that people across the political spectrum can support.
