The Mayor and council are like a board of directors, the City Manager is the CEO. You want experience and diversity of opinion on any board. Would you think that a $250M corporation would engage someone with no experience or knowledge of their business to advise them?

 

The problem in Victoria is that the Mayor acts like she runs the City and everyone else works for her.

Latest Lisa, Gene & Eric show out for your listening pleasure and this show we contemplate our representatives continual moving forward which can leave citizens wondering why a project was important enough to generate high profile media stories at their inception, but not enough to complete. Not sure about you, but it frustrates this podcaster to no end. Enjoy the show and we love your comments https://bit.ly/3uIRIQk

Maybe it's a self-preservation mechanism. The projects that start never end, like the David Foster Walkway, the Johnson Street Bridge (ahem, fenders and post-completion report, please?) and the bike lanes (I kid, I kid...).


Know it all.

We are pleased to release this LGE blast from the past, May 2015 when we had OCP author Mark Hornell join us to chat about the importance for communities to keep their eye on the prize and follow through on the goals stated in the document rather than pander to localized pressure to say no. I will leave it to you to decide how well our community has done with that. Enjoy the show  https://bit.ly/3CIKxvG

If you are referring to Mayor Helps, perhaps you are granting her far too much in the way or power and influence.

Our latest Lisa, Gene & Eric is out now and this show we are joined by VIATEC CEO Dan Gunn who shares his thoughts on what is needed to achieve innovation. Victoria has "created" an innovation district and whilst that seems like a good idea, can our community create a system that fosters innovation in land development. We love your comments and enjoy the show  https://bit.ly/3QO9IUO
