Best Leslie Knope-esque City Council Ad

Lane County Commission, Eugene City Council, are you reading this?

I could make sure the politicians are reading by naming a bunch of names and those commissioners and councilors who I'm pretty sure have Google alerts set up for their names (Jay Bozievich, I'm looking at you) will click right on this. 

Citizen involvement in city and county politics is key. But how do you get people to realize that those often deadly dull meetings of mostly older white guys are important and that's where decisions are made about human rights, homelessness, clean water, forests and parks, to name only a few?

You have the community access TV station make a cool video. Go Whitehorse, Yukon Territory! I keep waiting to see Leslie Knope's face pop up, but no, it's real.
