The Palo Alto City Council gets it!

The Palo Alto City Council is in the process of (hopefully) approving a proposal that would add transparency to negotiations with government labor unions.

I wanted to share the below excerpt from Monday’s city council meeting in which the proposal is discussed, as it represents a benchmark against which all other city councils should be measured when it comes to the issue of transparency in government:

The Council’s willingness to try and fix the the status quo of secrecy in government union negotiations is commendable, if not long overdue!

Hopefully more of California’s elected representatives will follow suit.
