Last week we asked “what if we could come up with a list of points that we could use to measure the performance over the next term of whoever gets elected to the council seat?”. As it turns out, something alpng similar lines has already been put together…

Kristen Schroeder Konate has put together an evaluatation form that looks to be good framework for gauging how folks are feeling about a representative.

She writes:

A little over 2 years ago, (maybe 3), I submitted a City Council District Representative Evaluation form. It is in Adobe Acrobat format and is very “user friendly” with drop-down boxes and areas to “check-mark” on performance. I have attached this evaluation for everyone’s review. […] This is an effective and proactive tool that can be used to gather information from everyone in the districts.

The drop-down boxes can be changed depending on who the representative is at the time, as well as any other item on the evaluation. I believe that I have designed a good platform evaluation from which we can build with more input from the community. I appreciate you taking the time to review my City Council District Rep Evaluation. My husband is a computer programmer and I am a graphic designer – so between the two of us, we offer our talents and input to the community wholeheartedly.

In my originial post, I was looking for concrete examples of what folks would like to see happen over the next 2 to 4 years. I was thinking that by having a list of specifics, it might be easier to objectively evaluate the candidates performance.
