Today, neighbors in the Livorna West neighborhoods were defining an informed resident. Clearly, such specification is based on research resources and willing study. Since June 2000, the original members of our regional effort to create well-informed neighborhood groups that could act in accordance with knowledgeable interests know that the regional result is thousands of informed residents.
What complicates this definition is political restriction on the definition of an informed resident. If one searches beyond allegiance to Contra Costa aggregated politics, then factions of county supporters will claim that such an informed resident is ignorant and misinformed.
At present, as your forum often illustrates, there are many informed residents with diverse views and positions. Many more informed residents read your forum with dismay for the commentary of county surrogates and their campaign to disallow the reality of citizen leadership of our governments.
SO, let's start a new exchange: What is an informed resident?
