Government decision-making takes time – time for public input, time for analysis, time for weighing both sides of the issue before making and informed decision.
People sometimes complain that the process takes too long, delays progress, costs extra money and is frustrating for discussion participants. Others say that the process does not give people enough time to comment and that decisions are made too quickly without enough consideration for all sides of the issue.
The foundation for democracy in America is our constitutional right to tell our elected leaders what we think about the issues that affect us; all citizens regardless of education, background or experience enjoy this right. Clovis welcomes you to public meetings and encourages you to participate in discussions that affect you.
The way you present your message at the podium can help or hurt your ability to persuade your audience. It can either facilitate or obstruct the public participation process. Whether you are an experienced public speaker or speaking at the podium for the first time, it may be helpful to remember these tips
Clovis city leaders appreciate your interest in issues that affect the Clovis community. We hope these tips will help you prepare and present your remarks so they will be clear, concise, accurate and credible. If you do this, your audience is likely to listen, pay attention and maybe even agree with you.
Remember, Clovis city government is not the City Council, City staff or Clovis citizens. It is all of us working together to understand each other’s opinions so we can make the best decisions for our community.
Thanks for participating!
