Include a Constituent Element in Your Review of City Department Heads

Mayor Garcetti,

We, the citizens of Los Angeles, and probably random internet users, in a time of much government secrecy, hereby petition you to include a small constituent element in your review of City Department Heads. Where Los Angeles is already a beacon of culture that touches every corner of the Earth, let us also stand as a shining example and advocate of government transparency.

A constituent element could be a Google Hangout with constituent interviewers, or an Ask Me Anything on reddit.com/r/LosAngeles. It could be an open phone line, where people submit questions and then each Department Head does a short video answering the questions. These are a few of a number of relatively simple, fast, and inexpensive ways to make this happen. We believe leading the charge for transparency, and connecting citizens with their leaders, would pay dividends for Los Angeles down the road.

We realize this is short notice, and your interviews are scheduled for Monday, but we nevertheless wanted to bring this request to your attention, in hope that we might work something out.

Thank you for your work thus far, and good luck in your new office!

- We the Undersigned
