Letter: Council members support videotaping of meetings

As an Atherton resident and City Council member, and a person who campaigned to open our meetings to more of the public through the use of commonly available technology, I am happy with the Atherton Police Officers Association initiative to videotape and post the meetings, which makes the meetings available to all residents and furthers the concept of open government.

While I hope my colleagues on the council and the city manager will help the town embrace other automated information and communications technology, I appreciate the initiatives and the efforts expended so far and invite any resident who could assist in this activity to participate.

Bill Widmer, Atherton City Council member
