    WHERE WAS WADE-EL?

    *    The one video the city has on their new YouTube channel is the Neighbor to Neighbor Forum and it features new city council member Ismail Smith Wade-El among others. Wade-El has missed two city council meetings and he was only sworn into office in January.
         There was a very long city council committee meeting on Monday which is available on Tony Dastra’s “See-Thru City – Lancaster, PA” Facebook page (click here). Very important topics were discussed and people nominated for very important positions (the Zoning Board, the CRIZ Board and the Lancaster City Human Relations Commission, etc.) but Wade-El was not there.
         This is disturbing and I will start keeping track of attendance at these meetings.

    OPEN GOVERNMENT?

          The City is now on YouTube (click here). Will city council and CRIZ meetings and others be posted? Stay tuned!
    Please check back later today.
