PUBLIC COMMENTS <br /> A. Lou Filipovich, 15376 Laverne Drive, said this process denies citizen <br /> participation and the right to choose. He said cities and counties use <br /> the Harris people to conduct polling ballots. He said he made a motion <br /> for a process, which the City Council ignored. He said the City could <br /> have put a list of candidates for the position in the newspaper and <br /> used that in making their decision. He said the Council has excluded <br /> the people of San Leandro from participation. <br /> Mayor Faria said the City Council is following the requirements of the <br /> City Charter. <br /> 5. NEW BUSINESS <br /> City Council and Staff Comments <br /> A. City Attorney Steve Meyers said he received a telephone call from an <br /> individual who was concerned about candidates for the appointment <br /> running for elective office in 1994. He said the Mayor asked him to <br /> clarify that the Council has decided it wishes to consider nominees who <br /> are not running for office in 1994. He said the City Council may <br /> consider that as a criteria, but it may not legally bind anyone not to <br /> run for office. He said they could make it a political consideration <br /> that they do not wish to consider someone who plans to run. He said <br /> the Charter makes it clear that the nominees must be registered voters <br /> of the City and residents of the District from which they wish to be <br /> appointed. - <br />
