We can only expect our government to govern well when it knows there’s accountability for its actions. Watch this video of Barbara Henry offering public comments during her local James City County Board of Supervisors meeting. The main topic is an online checkbook for the county’s financials, but she also addresses the Board’s treatment of public speakers.
Barbara is a student of the Center for Self Governance, who teaches citizens how to be more effective when interacting with one’s government. We encourage all engaged citizens to learn more about the tools and skills available to gain that effectiveness.
