Santa Rosa is keeping secret the names and application information about people seeking appointment to the City Council until after the application deadline passes. The council’s goal for the policy it adopted Tuesday is to preserve the integrity of the process and to encourage as large and diverse a group of applicants as possible, Mayor Scott Bartley said.
Here’s a copy of the Public Records Act request that we filed on Thursday afternoon. I’ll let you know what the response is. We hope to be able to report later today on who has filed to fill this vacancy on the Santa Rosa City Council.
