I'm okay with this additional change.

Subject: Re: [WEC] Consensus Check: Letter from WEC to Eugene City
Council - 20101130-01 Draft
I have not seen any additional emails expressing changes except the
small change requested by Alan Buck. Two WEC members accepted the change
but I have not seen any other comments on the subject. I have taken the
liberty to add this small change (in red) to the last draft dated
20101130 and have attached it to this email. Because time is of the
essence and the the last council meeting of 2010 is next Monday the
13th, this letter needs to be finalized today and provided to the
Mayor's office to be signed by the WEC membership.
Also, I wanted to gather a sense of where the WEC is with meeting with
individual council members. As Rob noted Saturday night: "Mary, Gary,
Jim, Jan and Aleta have signed up to contact city councilors. At least
one WEC member has signed up to contact each city councilor (aside from
Chris). But only Jan has signed up to contact George Brown, Betty Taylor
or Alan Zelenka. You can view -- or add to -- the sign up online:"
If meetings need to be coordinated please let me know and I will do what
I can to make that happen before Monday night.
Time is short, so please respond quickly if you want a coordinated
response from the WEC for the the next council meeting.
