December 4, 2018 Issues Identification Meeting:
The issues committee met on Monday, December 4th. 23 Superior Days delegates and interested community members were in attendance. Mayor Jim Paine led the group through a process, which first struck any issues that did not meet the Superior Days 3-part “acid test,” or issues sponsors wished to pull.
Following the meeting, 10 potential legislative issues have been identified (first linked document below). This list needs to be narrowed to approximately 5-issues by the end of December. Issues that receive full write-ups, and legislative sponsorship will receive top priority for the final legislative lobbying agenda. The second linked document, includes the status of all issues brainstormed at the January issues identification meeting.
