I have spoken at several Council meetings now, and I have been disallowed from speaking at some as well.
Although all persons have the right to speak at public Council meetings, and you may need to seek permission from the CEO, Mayor or a Councillor through a special request, subject matter experts can also have their presentations read out by a local Member of the Council.
A local resident and rate payer is considered a local Member of that Council.
To assist you in your advocacy and lobbying your local governments, I have put together these resources, so you can be forearmed and forewarned.
PREPARATION IS KEY!
KEEP PUSHING AND DO NOT GIVE UP!!
LET ME KNOW HOW YOU GO ....
