Boston City Council. Councilor Matt O'Malley, open government, transparency

Boston City Council. Councilor Matt O'Malley advocates a more open Boston City Council, more open government, a more transparent City Hall...
Clean clear text stenographic record.
Please advocate a more open Boston City Council. For example, advocate for a clean clear text transcript of the stenographic record of the public meetings of Boston City Council when the bidding for City Stenographer is reviewed next year.
Public funds. Bidding for stenographic service.
Instead of unnecessary public funds for the software the City Stenographer can use Plover software http://plover.stenoknight.com the open source steno program.

Unobscured public proceedings.
Advocate public meetings of Boston City Council be conducted so the people can better understand the proceedings.

Closed/Open Captioning on webcasts/cablecasts video of public meetings of Boston City Council for folks with hearing loss, deaf, cognitive disabilities, communication disorders.

Bordering streets' names.
Names of streets bordering City Council Districts needed for more precise Redistricting maps. At what street does a District end and another District begin?
