Dear Editor,

During news service interviews with county and local elected officials a structure for government communication emerged that suggested residents, groups and committees from communities arrange direct meetings with their elected official as early as issues appear so investigations of such issues can yield definition for decisions by departments, boards and councils. Various boards, councils, committees come late in the process as they prepare for decisions or advisories. At that point in the process of mitigation of issues, such boards, councils, commissions and committees need spokepeople from the communities and regions that can provide brief presentation that defines the majority's attitudes and specifies the decision sought by that majority.

It seems government communication and engagement is now defined and you might feature a reference story on your home page that provides the go-to contact information in communities and regions.

Dear Editor,

It is the right and authority of neighborhood and community groups to identify their meetings with supervisors and other elected officials. AS you protect your sources and many sponsored commentators on your Express Forum, CDSI Research will respect the privacy of such groups supported by our research and advisory efforts. More importantly, defamation by political factions in challenge to such respect of privacy will not change that result.
