You really couldn't ask for more publicity

It would be hard to argue that APS didn't do what they reasonably could, to inform interest holders know about the community input and engagement meeting tonight; at least those who pay attention to the Journal and the TV news.  I don't know if the invite is running on their digital billboard at Del Norte High School.

You can't make people pay attention any more than you can make students pay attention.

The Journal ran a decent piece on the meeting, I even saw two pieces on TV.  Oddly, I couldn't find a link to any of them.

I did stumble onto Journal Education Reporter Hailey Heinz' blog post on the meeting. I recommend it to your time and attention, link.

I recommend also, to your time and attention, the meeting itself.

Two hours of your time, and two hours of your attention.

How committed are we, to the principle of meaningful involvement in decision making about our interests?  How committed are we, to the principle of transparent accountability in our government?

Sacrifice is the currency of commitment.

All that is necessary open and honest two-way communication between the leadership of the APS and the community members they serve, to remain forever elusive, is for good men to do nothing.

One cannot reasonably proclaim the importance of principles
and then not show up to the fight to defend them.
