Stephen Davis: Council-At-Large Applicant
I have been involved with a variety of businesses, organizations, committees, boards, groups, and commissions.
I am creative and deliberative. I can work in a group apolitically for the greater good.
On two Lakewood Charter Commissions, I not only engaged with our own elected and appointed officials, but went outside to other communities and groups for help and opinions. I was also the biggest advocate for public participation in the charter review process.
To answer any question, or at any point in a deliberative process, I am comfortable saying any of the following:
I don’t know.
I want to know more.
I need to know more.
How do we know?
Let’s find somebody that knows more.
How do they know?
He/she/they seem to know, but does it apply here?
I know that’s wrong.
I thought I knew until I heard that.
I can’t make a decision until I know.
Can we even know?
I think we can make a decision with all that we know.
