This past week I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to Canberra with the majority of our Coffs Coast Councillors, Mayor and the GM to attend the 2018 National General Assembly. I learnt SO MUCH! {to be really honest this was my 3rd Local Government conference. The 1st one I sat there thinking “what the hell are they talking about?!?”. The 2nd one I felt like I was kind of getting the hang of it 😝 and this one I really enjoyed and got so much out of it ❤️} There are so many amazing places and people going above and beyond for their communities and I’m so excited to have the opportunity to contribute to seeing even more amazing things happening in our local area as well. Lots of issues were highlighted, including women in leadership, which is something I’m super passionate about incaseyoudidntknow 😆 and many suggestions and possibilities for the future were put forward. Check out the images of the finalists in the local government awards and the cool things they are doing 🙌 (Also being away meant no kids, no cleaning, sleeping in and me attempting to take selfies 😂😂.) localgovernment NGA18 womeninleadership communitybuilding leadingandlearning conference workandplay newplacesnewpeople

Over the past two days I’ve been serving as a delegate for Senate District 9 for the Texas Democrats, and, if I’m being totally honest, it’s made me a little disenchanted with the governmental process. Most of what we did could have been done in local rec centers over the course of a day; instead, the leadership planned an extravagant event that cost the party money and its people more time than necessary. Don’t get me wrong - I’m 100% thrilled that my party’s platform has my fingerprints on it, but this disappointment is why it’s so important to get involved, even in the local stuff. Involvement is key, and change is slow. ThisIsWhatDemocracyLooksLike

Donna and I had a great time at the “Peaches and Politics “ event for Representative Robert Dickey last night. We connected with many of our friends and made new ones as well! If I have the honor of being elected, I look forward to serving with Rep. Dickey and all the other members of the Georgia House. It was a great event and we enjoyed being there!

>>Swipe>> •Fueled by emotion, a rant• ————————————— Upset. Pissed, rather. The shit that is going on in our community is disgraceful. Here, we have a plant. A PLANT. A👏PLANT. A👏fucking👏plant👏. A plant so versatile that its components can clothe the naked skin; open a closed mind; treat Man-made illness... Yet, the people we’ve selected to represent our needs continue to demonize what might literally be a miracle plant. Demonized in favour of man made money, alcohol, and drugs. We live in a society where many may partake and freely profit from this miracle plant, while the ignominy of it has led to the incarceration of our brothers and sisters. Or worse, has gotten them murdered philandocastile The fact that cannabis is still illegal, despite the evidence proving that it shouldn’t be, is a true criminal act. A criminal act carried out in plain sight by a government that we, as a people, should have an understanding and control of. The fact that cannabis is illegal falls on our shoulders just as much as it does the people we’ve selected to represent our interests. So let us hold this accountability; this anger at how unjust this system of secrecy, snitches, informants, misguided laws, ill-intent has plagued our society. Let us do something positive with it during our fucking lifetime. “Life cannot be contained” Inspired by the first picture, and the thoughts that came with it. Thank you personaphobe for posting it. ——————————————— isupporttheinitiative dccannabiscommunity cannabiscommunity cannabisculture think openmind openheart change move movement rant cannabis activist government localgovernment ——————————————— •As always, I believe that cannabis can remedy the opioid crisis plaguing our brothers and sisters. (When I say brothers and sisters, Im not just referring to fellow people of colour, I mean every human being. Separation by skin colour is a hindering construct that puts one in a box to be catagorised. Would you want to be catagorised with other people of the same colour or do you, yourself, have so much more to offer the world? ——————————————— rantover inevertalkthismuch alwaystired tiredofbeingtired tiredofthebullshit

Amazing meeting today with nalc109 discussing ways to improve diversity and inclusion in LocalGovernment. One of the key takeaways for me was around progression and leadership. Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council are a diverse Council and often achieve higher than national average in diverse representation statistics, yet since our creation in 2016 only 2 examples of female leadership have arisen from 15 opportunities.. (9 opportunities to chair committees, 3 to Lead the Council and 3 to be Mayor).. How do we break down barriers of progression?

www.takebackyourpower.net www.inpowermovement.com Director/Producer - Josh del Sol Strategic Director - Cal Washington Every so often you come across some gems when researching and this is definitely one of them. The InPower Movement is not a political movement, rather a collaboration of minds to empower the people through education of the legal process of refusing hazardous technology, such as 5G and Smart meters, as well as a database of document templates to see you through this legal process. Currently these templates are for citizens of U.S.A. and Canada however I have been told there is a team working on an Australian version of the documents so I will definitely keep an eye out for that. I have spent quite some time looking through this website and the provided documents and folks I really think they are on to something with this. inpowermovement takebackyourpower noticeofliability smartmeter smartgrid 5g takeaction spreadtheword actionplan health healthhazard emf getinvolved makeadifference wakeup technocracy australia australianpolitics australiancommunity localcommunitysupport localcommunity localgovernment spreadthelove totalitarian positivechange noncompliance knowledgeispower strengthinnumbers stop5g wedonotconsent

Repost maroondahcitycouncil (get_repost) ・・・ Deputy Mayor, Cr Mike Symon was today joined by Cr Kylie Spears, Arrabri Ward, Maroondah City Council to launch the new mural at Tarralla Kindergarten today - ‘Walking in Harmony with Bunjil’s Creation’ by artist Janette Bird. The artwork is the outcome of a successful application by Tarralla Kindergarten to Maroondah City Council’s Arts & Culture Grants Scheme. ‘Walking in Harmony with Bunjil’s Creation’ is a creative example of how Aboriginal culture can be embedded into the day to day life of the community. Tarralla - an Aboriginal word - is the name of the local creek and means walking quickly. The major feature of the mural is the creek which is made up of the Tarralla Kindergarten students’ footprints. The native animals represent the six kindergarten groups and they are watched over by Bunjil the eagle, protector and creator of all things. The story told through this mural is that Tarralla Kindergarten is a safe, fun and inclusive place where students develop a strong sense of belonging. Janette combined her own journey as an Indigenous person to create this mural, and we are also thankful to the generous contribution of Mullum Mullum Indigenous Gathering Place who ran cultural awareness workshops with the students. artsinmaroondah tarralla tarrallakindergarten maroondah maroondahcitycounil mural mullummullumindigenousgatheringplace mmigp learningculture localgovernment artsandculture proud aboriginal indigenous culture visualart artsandculture celebratemaroondah bunjil [visual description: two rows of people standing in front of a mural painted in the side of a building in greens, blues and yellows, featuring trees and creek made up of children’s footprints, plus a kangaroo.

. Dear Mr. Roberts, . I am writing to ask you to reconsider the decision to allow the cherry tree in front of XXXX NW 64th Street in Ballard from being removed. As resident of the neighborhood, I am pro-growth and pro-density. I am glad to see new townhouses developed to make room for new neighbors. But I also feel that it is critical to preserve the wonderful trees that help to make our neighborhood an amazing place to live. . Please help keep our neighborhood beautiful! . Sincerely, .

latergram billshortenmp addressing the National General Assembly of LocalGovernment in Canberra on Tuesday. A far better speaker irl than his robotic media appearances would suggest. Policies discussed included constitutional recognition of local government; closer relationships between federal and local govts; continuity of funding; disaster relief; NBN; no secretive “city deals”; upgrade community sport infrastructure esp. for women and girls sports; improving urban waterways; reducing plastic pollution and waste. Only discussed climatechange when asked directly. And like most in the audience, I was bemused when he said he'd always been “ambitious, but not ambitious enough to be a Councillor” due to the demands of the job. . . . innerwest innerwestcouncil politics auspol Australia
