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 know.

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.
