Due to the amazing and overwhelming support we have been experiencing, SLO Clean Energy has been working with SLO City staff to manage the participation of Community Choice Energy supporters at the community forum Tuesday to ensure that there is sufficient space for a diversity of voices. We want to do our part to maintain the integrity of the community forum process.
Because of limited seating capacity, we are requesting that if you do not live or work in the City of San Luis Obispo, then we graciously ask you to please sit this one out.
Every 2 years, the City of San Luis Obispo takes on a major priority setting process. This process is starting now for 2015-17. During a presentation early this year, the SLO City Council told us that if we wanted to see Community Choice happen, we needed to make it a City priority. So that is exactly what we are going to do!
Key Strategy: May the most dots win!
On Tuesday January 13 from 6pm to 9:00ish, the city will hold a community forum at the Ludwig Community Center. The basic agenda for this event involves public comment on a variety of potential priorities followed by Dotocracy, where people who are present get to vote with dots on priorities captured on paper during the forum
Three representatives of SLO Clean Energy will give coordinated testimony to the council and staff. During our comments, all supporters of SLO Clean Energy will stand and show strong visible support. The council appreciates this approach over numerous people giving comment because it saves time and still makes a big impact. Once Dots are passed out, all supporters will cast their dots of support for our Community Choice Energy Program.
The goal is to have 200+ community choice supporters present, all wearing their very own SLO Clean Energy T-Shirt, to stand in support and vote with their dots.
A few extra details: (please read)
- All supporters who come get a sweet SLO Clean Energy t-shirt!
- Please plan to be there for the whole time. Being here this night will change the future of energy in SLO County forever. It's worth it.
- There is no need to speak. You can if you want to, but we encourage you to speak with your dots.
- Supporters do not need to be residents of SLO City – You are encouraged to attend if you Live, Work, or Worship in SLO City.
- We will be meeting ahead of time at 5:00p at the SLO Library Commuity Room for Pizza, shirts, and organizing.
