Hi Bill, 
I'd love to sit down and catch up before Tuesday, if possible.  What times work best for you?  We'll try to pull together as many of our team as can participate.

Hello Froggi,

I trust that this finds you well. Did you get a good view of the eclipse?

If you would like to talk about the climate action advisory board and the climate recovery ordinance, let me know. Your colleagues, with or without you, are welcome. I am mostly free for the next couple of weeks, except not Thursday Aug 31.

I expect that you know that the next council meeting is Tuesday Sept 5. I have not seen the agenda, but I imagine that the advisory board will be discussed. I expect that nothing definite will be decided, but I also think that the earlier an opinion and/or position is presented, the more effect it is likely to have.

Probably, not for sure, I will go to the Richard Heinberg talk on Wednesday Aug 30. We could compare calendars then.

Thanks for your work. Enjoy the day.

Best wishes,
Bill Glassmire

Hi Bill,
Thanks so much for responding!  The week was so busy that this just fell
right off my visible emails - wow.
Thank you for the clarifications regarding the Council agendas.
We'd be so grateful to take you up on the offer to sit down and continue
our discussion.  I understand your role should be to consider all ideas in
their full context, not to advocate for specific positions.  I'd be happy
to cover more pros and cons, and continue to help reach an understanding of
what's at the core of what we are trying to accomplish.
Let me know if you have free time in the coming week(s) and would like to
Warm regards,
