Reflection

Take a few moments and think about how you approach your responsibilities as a councillor. Are you more inclined to be problem-oriented or opportunity oriented? For example, are you generally optimistic about the local government and ability to cope with community issues, or are you more pessimistic? Are your concern about what the council should be doing focused more on immediate problems or on future plans?
