• Both! I'd propose a two-year term for residents and a one-year rotation of councilmembers. I'd like to see results like: city checkbook posted on line; city blog for ongoing conversation; simple reporting of campaign donations; polls/reviews like the big citywide one that some departments have acted on; open conversation with residents about what the city could/should be doing.
