Community members listened attentively, from county officials to council members and residents. Amid a provision of Cuban food, those listening had the opportunity to ask questions about the policy approach.

Democracy is more than just electing one person and expecting them to solve all our problems. It's about representation of the community. This requires the community to understand social issues.

The politics are confusing. It's hard to vote for people you don't know and laws you don't understand.

This problem is solved with open communication. It provides a basis for the community to be heard. Establishing an active dialogue between officials and the public facilitates understanding of what is happening.

As a result of the presentation, it is much easier to understand what Supervisor Corzo is supporting.

Corzo provided a welcoming environment of community involvement. By speaking to the community in this way, you establish accountability and transparency of representation.

You may not agree with the policy. But there is no denying that community issues are easier to understand now.

It is the process of listening and understanding, which makes representative democracy possible. When the people are better informed, we all benefit.
