It’s getting a little tougher to do backroom deals and keep public information…hidden…. in Brigantine. You can thank this crazy contraption called the Internet for that. Attendees at Brigantine City Council meetings have been asking for documents, video and other public info to be shared in a timely manner. Seems like a fair request.
Click through to watch video clips where a Brigantine taxpayer respectfully corners our digitally deficient….elected officials. You’ll love how our Brigantine City Manager tap dances her way through an explanation that would make an ‘Obamacare’ website designer proud.
Has the city improved in the area of sharing vital information? A little. But not much. Take a look at this Brigantine Hurricane Sandy story from last year. A major storm, and our elected officials dropped the ball.
Today, Brigantine City Council is still filled with those who admit fear and un-familiarity with common, inexpensive communications tools like Email, Websites, Facebook and YouTube. It’s seems they’re OK with that. Well, it’s not OK with those who live & pay taxes in Brigantine. Many depend on quick communication from our city leaders.
Is it really OK for the city webmaster to be over 2 months behind in posting simple documents to a confusing city website?
Thanks for NOT doing your simple job, well-paid city employee.
