By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON May 26, 2011 – The Mayor is using every trick in the book to pull the public into the development of the Strategic Plan he, his Council and city Hall Staff are putting together to set out the Mission, Vision and strategic direction the city needs. It is proving to be a tough climb.

While working with a consultant the Strategic Plan team is asking questions and putting together the base that will get taken to the public. One of the channels being used to reach that public is cable television where Mark Carr, former city councillor interviewed the Mayor on the Cogeco Cable For the Record program.

The live session broadcast from Council Chambers used all the technology available including Tweets the to Mayors list, email messages to an address created for the show and links through the city’s Facebook page. While the response wasn’t overwhelming the effort was commendable.
