Project: Adopt a counselor
Why did I initiate this project?
The activity of local councilors in Brasov is still unknown to the citizens. There are 27 councilors from Brasov, but only the councilors who have become vice-mayors are more visible as an activity. Activity reports are rare, we have not identified press releases or information that new local counselors have set up days and hours of audience or contact, and very few local counselors use social media to communicate with citizens. Moreover, the sessions of the Brasov Local Council committees are closed sessions and there is no real debate on local regulations that counselors can present to citizens. A new local council was formed in June 2016 and we want its members to be open, transparent, inform and consult citizens and local stakeholders interested in the problems / needs / situations of the city and the citizens. Our solution Initiating an “Adopt a Counselor” campaign through which citizens will monitor and evaluate the work of local councilors in Brasov for a period of 10 months. Publication of information on the City Hall’s website and public debates. Identification and dissemination of methods and solutions for the transparency of the activity of the Local Council.
