    It is actually a good thing to have part-time council members. Having a “day job” keeps them more in line with the realities of the rest of us and reduces the risk of becoming absorbed into the group-think of the city staff.

    We don’t really need more full-time politicians. We need more community leaders.

      I’m gonna have to disagree with you on this one. I plan to spend many hours with the citizens of Fort Collins. Hours that a “day job” would preclude. Spending time with the citizens is critical to combatting the group-think that you refer to. I view citizen advocate as a vital role of Council member. Thanks for the comment!
