City Council is coming up Tuesday, March 20th.  Call 311 to sign up to Speak to Council at 6:30pm.  There's good stuff & bad on tap at the meeting.  We also discuss an idea to help with Food Justice in Rochester.  There's a lot of vacant land in the city.  Why not use it to grow food where there's food apartheid?

To focus on public safety, we shouldn't just be focusing on policing.  We should decriminalize marijuana, create jobs for teenagers and young adults, expand recreation, and provide housing for the homeless.  At the same time, police should be retrained to use more restorative methods and there should be follow-up with people who use police services with resources.  Also, the Roc the River concept is government corruption and incompetence at its finest.  You have to hear this to believe it.
