Re: “Civility Now

Great coverage, Kimberly.

I would have completely voted yes over this was it not for the ability to endorse future candidates. Name recognition from endorsements can help candidates win elections. I'm not one to take offense to someone not endorsing me but I see the argument that the other council members raised that it could. I guess I was thinking of the bigger picture, whether it be endorsing people, or endorsing organizations such as climate action groups etc. A bit of weight is lost in the endorsement process if you can't list your full title, especially people who are not familiar with the community or does not look too deep into public office holders and know everyone's names.

It would be nice in helping to get future candidates to run for office to have the ability to back them not just with a name, but a title as well. But I guess I also forget that people can hold grudges over the smallest of things such as not getting endorsed by someone. It is what it is and maybe it's actually for the best. Perhaps other government organizations in our community can follow suit with the code of ethics we passed.

Cheers!
