I've noticed that the City of San Diego TV is now displaying views of slides of citizens speakers. Not full screen as sometimes requested but in the upper left corner of the speaker's camera shot on City TV.

Is the City in fact showing all of the slides now when it hadn't in the past?

Yes. I believe they are now showing almost all of the slides in the small view (when they didn't in the past). They typically do a "zoom in" and "zoom out" effect which sometimes misses the first and last few slides.

If you watch the whole (several hour) Council videos, you'll find that when the City Staff presents, their slides are often shown full screen. But when citizens speak, we get some arbitrarily sized version ... regardless of what we ask.

The Brown Act has been mentioned and I'm wanting to know was it only the implied threat of a possible complaint of The Brown Act violation by the City that now has more slides being displayed during that segment of the public addressing the council.

I suspect that the City Attorney has given Sherri Lightner ample warning that the City might be in violation of the Brown Act by not showing slides when I've repeatedly asked them to do so. The City Attorney's office would probably be considered negligent for not giving such a warning, so I suspect they have. The City was sued a while back for trying to claim that the Monday and Tuesday meetings were really just ONE meeting, and so they only allowed non-agenda comment on one of the two days. I believe the City either lost that lawsuit or realized they didn't have a prayer and settled it. In other words, they spent tax payer dollars in a misguided attempt to suppress citizens' speech. That's just another "DNA" sample of the systemic problems within the City of San Diego.

Bill, you're a great - and vigilant - American!!!    :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute:
