    Don't Forget Politics in Your Muni Broadband Marketing Plan.

    in Internet

    Developing relationships with elected officials and city government staff is critical to any muni network marketing plan, both locally and at the state level. For many communities, public networks are bipartisan efforts. At the state level, however, getting both sides of the aisle to come together behind these networks produces mixed results.


    The city of Sandy Oregon has a very stellar relationship between City staff, elected officials and constituents. City IT Director Joe Knapp and Sandy Council President Jeremy Peitzold tell us what works for them while offering other communities some perspectives to consider.



    how do city staff and city council form consensus defining the goals, getting funding and planning marketing;
    everybody wants the network built in their area first, and but political tensions can build because somebody has to be last;
    what do you do when one or two opponents of the network are one city council;
    is public networks’ role in economic development the key to legislative good will.

    ARE YOU WORKING WITH A BULLY?

    in Current Events

    ARE YOU WORKING WITH A BULLY?


    Are you working with a bully? More than 25% of us are.  If you aren't being bullied, chances are you have seen someone being abused by a supervisor or coworker.  When we talk workplace bullying, we're talking more than some eye rolls or impatient words. Those can be off-putting, but when we talk bullying, we're talking about more than that. The eye rolls and the harsh words are often coupled with more verbal abuse, with non-verbal actions, with exclusionary actions, and they are used repeatedly.  We're talking covert abuse along with overt actions perpetrated by someone who is doing it on purpose to targeted workers.


    Think you are the victim of workplace bullying? Gary Namie, PhD, is research director and one of the founders of the Workplace Bullying Institute. According to its website, "WBI is the first and only U.S. organization dedicated to the eradication of workplace bullying that combines help for individuals, research, books, public education, training for professionals-unions-employers, legislative advocacy, and consulting solutions for organizations.


    Tune in Saturday at 11 am Pacific time to hear what he has to say and to ask questions about workplace bullying and what you can do if you are targeted -- or what you should do if you are the bully.


    Call-in with your comments to (646) 378-0430.

    Boston City Council, Same But Different

    in Politics Progressive

    The high drama and low comedy of Boston politics surely plays out most publicly with its mayors. Yet since 1909, much of the real action and strongest personalities have been in the City Council. That's when Boston revised from a board of aldermen and common council. They are the legislative body, who go far beyond their main duty of voting up or down the annual city budget.


    With no staggered terms, the 9 district councilors and 4 at-large ones run every two years. In theory, citizens could throw the bums out two years. 


    In my decades here,  I have seen, heard and dealt with various iterations of the Council. I have met and even confronted some real lulus and loons. Those alter kakers are gone and in recent years egos have been in check and responsibility much higher.


    We've recently lost some of the most active, smartest and overall best councilors. Some stepped down to run for mayor. Some burned out. At least one left for more money.


    In this election year, I'll set up future shows with incumbents and the few challengers. I'll talk about the shifts and possibilities.
