But we need your input: Remaining public hearings by the Charter Revision Commission are scheduled for 7 p.m., Feb. 5 at Jepson School (15 Lexington Avenue) and Feb. 7, 2013 at Conte/West Hills School (511 Chapel Street). [Previous hearings were held Jan 17 & Feb 1.] Note that, although the Charter Revision Commission already has come up with 15 items for consideration, according to CT state statute [Sec. 7-190] they can consider "other items as it deems desirable or necessary". Based on media coverage thus far, I expect most of the public hearings will center on the possibility of a hybrid Board of Ed. HOWEVER, for those of us who do not have children in the New Haven school system—but who are interested in incorporating true democracy in New Haven's government—the items listed by Mr. Goldson in the following Forum article--as well as in the comments below--should be of considerable interest: [FORUM: Revising New Haven charter could open political process ]
