Councilman Bob & Cindy Weiner with their Pomeranian pup, Shayna

 

My duty as your County Councilman is to make county government work for all of us. Since 1996, I have dedicated myself to respond promptly to every constituent request. I have developed experience and skills to seek creative solutions. I have passionately fought against irresponsible development while also fighting to protect our precious open space.

Councilman Weiner wants to Make Video of All Public Council Meetings Available to the Citizens of New Castle County

The public has a right to both observe and determine if their elected officials are maintaining the highest standards of ethical behavior and fiscal prudence.  It is now economically and practically feasible to broadcast County Council proceedings at a nominal cost due to advancements in modern technology.

Video access would strengthen the public’s awareness and engagement in local decision-making; thus promoting our county government’s transparency, efficiency, effectiveness and fiscal prudence.

This demonstration was paid for by Friends of Bob Weiner. Hopefully the rest of Council will support videorecording of all future meetings.

In addition to 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has protested during the national anthem by first sitting down and now taking a knee, other players have either taken a knee or raised a fist, sparking controversy among many fans and leading some to boycott the NFL. While it is uncertain whether that has been a significant factor in the ratings drop, a Rasmussen Reports survey earlier this month found that almost a third of 1,000 Americans surveyed said they're less likely to watch NFL games because of the protests. Overall, 52 percent said the protests had not impacted their decision to watch games. At BICYCLING, our takeaway from Deflategate is neither outrage over a despicable infraction, nor bemusement at an overhyped non scandal. Instead, we see this as a rare opportunity to celebrate the sanity of our own governing body.

Lynch and the are coming off a tough and physical win at Tennessee in Week 1.

Ragland led Buffalo with six tackles, including one behind the line of scrimmage, in the Bills' 17 10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday. Sylve made three tackles in his first game since Alabama's CFP Cheap Jordan Retro championship victory over Clemson to cap the 2015 season. He missed last season because of a torn Achilles tendon.

He opted out of his contract with the 49ers, who said they otherwise would have released him rather than keeping him under the terms of that deal. That left him free to sign with any team, but there have been no takers.
