[ARCHIVED] Cville360 Public Participation Policy
Cville360 Public Participation Policy
On May 19, 2020, the City of Charlottesville hosted a public forum via a Cville360 broadcast. The meeting was moderated by City Communications Director Brian Wheeler and Charlottesville City Councilmember Heather Hill was in attendance. During the broadcast, Charlottesville resident Ms. Tanesha Hudson was not allowed to speak or ask any questions.
She subsequently filed a grievance with the City and, in response, the City issued a formal written policy on July 2, 2020 which confirms and assures that all individuals will have reasonable opportunities to ask questions and provide comments during a Cville360 broadcast.
The City of Charlottesville, and specifically, Charlottesville Communications Director, Brian Wheeler, would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to Ms. Hudson for Brian Wheeler’s refusing to call on her to participate during the May 19, 2020 forum.
