WE ARE GOING TO CALL THE MEETING OF THE CULTURE AND DIVERSITY CITIZENS ACTIONS COMMISSION CALL THE MEETING TO ORDER AT 4:32 PM.

AND WE HAVE OUR ROLL CALL.

OKAY.

MIA HONAKER, UH, IS NOT PRESENT.

SHE DID CALL AND INDICATE SHE'S EL.

SO SHE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE A PART OF THE MEETING TODAY.

UH, ERIC STEVENS, PRESIDENT YOLANDA STEVENS, PRESIDENT RHONDA SOMETHING.

RIGHT.

THANK YOU EVERYONE.

SO, UM, NEED TO HAVE AN APPROVAL OF OUR MINUTES FROM OUR JULY 22ND MEETING.

ARE THERE ANY AMENDMENTS TO THAT? I MOVED THAT WE'LL APPROVE THE MINUTES FROM OUR MEETING LAST, LAST WEEK.

YEAH, IF YOU RECALL, LAST WEEK WE TALKED, THE MINUTES CAN STAND AS APPROVED IF THERE'S NO AMENDMENTS OR OBJECTIONS.

SO THE CHAIR COULD DECLARE THAT, UM, WITHOUT EMOTION, ALL RIGHT.

THE MEETING STAND AS WRITTEN.

SO WE WILL MOVE TO OUR NEW BUSINESS TONIGHT, WHICH WOULD BE OUR INTERVIEW QUESTIONS.

SO TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO FINALIZE THE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS THAT WE WILL BE ASKING CANDIDATES, UM, FOR AS PART OF THE INTERVIEW PROCESS FOR THE, THE COMMISSION.

SO FROM OUR LAST MEETING, WE DISCUSSED A FEW QUESTIONS AND WE WERE GOING TO REVISE SOME OF THOSE QUESTIONS.

AND SO TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO DISCUSS WHICH QUESTIONS WE WILL KEEP AND WHICH QUESTIONS WE DECIDE TO TAKE OUT.

SO HAS EVERYONE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE QUESTIONS ARE OUR SUGGESTED QUESTIONS RATHER? YES.

OKAY.

SO WHAT WE'D LIKE TO START, I THINK WE WILL START AT THE BEGINNING.

WE HAD ACTUALLY END UP WITH EIGHT QUESTIONS AND WE ADDED FIVE ADDITIONAL.

WE WERE TRYING TO GET TO ABOUT SEVEN QUESTIONS FOR TIME SAKE, BECAUSE WE HAVE A 30 MINUTE INTERVIEW SLOT.

SO BASED ON THAT, WHEN WE REVIEW THE QUESTIONS ONE THROUGH EIGHT, WERE THERE ANY THAT YOU FELT THAT WE COULD GET RID OF OR ELIMINATE OR COMBINE NOW, YOLANDA? THIS IS BASED ON THE, THE UPDATE AS OF LAST MEETING, RIGHT? YES.

OKAY.

WHICH WAS THE DOCUMENT I INCLUDED WITH THE PACKET, UH, FOR TODAY? UM, I WILL SAY YOLANDA ONE THING, IS THAT THE FIRST QUESTION THAT TALKS ABOUT ELIGIBILITY, THAT'S GOING TO BE A RATHER SHORT A YES OR NO QUESTION.

UH, YOU KNOW, JUST DO THE PEEP.

DOES THE PERSON B DOES REQUIREMENTS.

SO, UM, I DON'T KNOW THAT THAT NEEDS ACCOUNT AS ONE OF YOUR, YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS.

CAUSE IT COULD BE, IT SHOULD BE PRETTY STRAIGHT.

OKAY.

SO WHEN WE SAY ONE, THIS, SO THAT I'M CLEAR BECAUSE WE HAD THE QUESTIONS ON PAGE 14, IT STARTED WITH NUMBER TWO, THE NUMBER TWO, RIGHT.

TWO THROUGH TWO THROUGH SIX.

ARE THOSE THE CORE? SO WE TALKED ABOUT ONE THROUGH EIGHT, WHICH WE'RE REFERRING TO OR DIFFERENT THINGS.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE, I KNOW WE HAVE A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS IN HERE.

OH, THAT WAS THE PAGE 14 WAS I GUESS, TO ELICIT THOSE TO QUESTIONS WE WILL WORK FROM, I BELIEVE, LET ME, I THINK YOU'RE ACTUALLY IN THE, UM, IN THE MINUTES LAST TIME IT'S IN THE PACKET FOR TODAY.

UM, THERE WAS ONLY ONE DOCUMENT ATTACHED IN TWO DAYS AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT SHE'S GOING FROM.

SORRY.

YES.

SO I'M SHARING THAT DOCUMENT NOW.

HOPEFULLY YOU CAN SEE MY SCREEN.

YES.

OKAY.

SO THESE WERE THE QUESTIONS.

SO THE FIRST QUESTION WE DON'T NECESSARILY NEED TO COUNT.

UM, BUT QUESTION TWO WAS JUST TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BACKGROUND, WHICH I WOULD VENTURE TO SAY.

WE WOULD WANT TO KEEP THAT QUESTION.

[00:05:05]

ANY THOUGHTS? UH, I GUESS THAT'S, I MEAN, THAT'S A DECENT QUESTION.

UM, COULD WE COMBINE MAYBE TWO AND FOUR, TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND ANY SKILLS AND ABILITIES YOU HAVE AS IT RELATES TO CULTURAL DIVERSITY.

COULD WE COMBINE THOSE MAYBE? YES.

AND THAT'S, THAT'S FINE TOO.

UM, SO WHEN I'M LOOKING AT THAT QUESTION, RIGHT? TELL YOU, OH, HE TOOK, HE TOOK IT OFF THE SCREEN.

WE'RE NOT SHARING ANYMORE.

OH, YOU SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO SEE IT.

GET A POP OFF DISAPPEARED.

YEAH.

OH, OKAY, COOL.

WE'LL TRY THAT AGAIN.

RIGHT.

OKAY.

RIGHT, RIGHT.

SO, SO LET ME JUST ASK, SO WITH THIS QUESTION, RIGHT, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BACKGROUND.

AND OBVIOUSLY BELOW IN PARENTHESES, IT SAYS EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE, PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE.

WHAT WE'RE GOING TO, I GUESS, QUALIFY THAT BY SAYING THAT, TELL US ABOUT YOUR EDUCATION AND PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE.

UM, IS THAT A PART OF THE QUESTION BECAUSE THAT'S NOT IN THE QUESTION ITSELF, EVEN THOUGH I KNOW WE KIND OF PUT IT IN PARENTHESES, SO I THINK IT NEEDS EASILY BE MORE THAN JUST SAY, I ASSUME WE NEED TO BE EVEN MORE SPECIFIC OR IF IT IS ANY MORE SPECIFIC SAY ABOUT, OR FOR THEM TO TALK ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE AS IT RELATES TO DIVERSITY THAN THAT SPECIFIC.

BUT I JUST THINK WE EITHER, THE QUESTION IS, SHOULD BE, YOU KNOW, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOUR EDUCATION PROFESSIONALS PER STICKING.

IT CAN TELL US ABOUT WHICH WE'VE ALREADY, I GUESS WE ALREADY HAVE SEEN THAT RIGHT.

THROUGH THEIR RESUME THROUGH THEIR APPLICATION.

SO, UM, BUT YEAH, MAYBE IT JUST NEEDS TO BE MORE SPECIFIC AS IT RELATES TO DIVERSITY, RIGHT? YEAH.

RACIAL ISSUES OR RACE RELATIONS OR SOMETHING TO THAT REGARD.

IS THAT GOOD? YEP.

I THINK THAT, YEAH.

YEAH.

YEAH.

CAUSE I THINK THAT GETS THEM TO TALK MORE ABOUT THE RELEVANT EXPERIENCE.

RIGHT.

OKAY.

SO THAT TOOK OUT, WELL, LET'S SEE, QUESTION THREE.

TELL US WHY YOU UNDERSTAND THE PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION WHILE YOU'RE INTERESTED IN SERVING, NOT BEFORE THAT.

SO IT WAS AT, SO DELETE NUMBER FOUR THEN.

IS THAT WHAT WE'RE SAYING? UM, RHONDA.

YEAH.

CAUSE IT, NUMBER ONE, NUMBER THREE.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION.

UM, WE'RE GONNA KEEP THAT ONE.

YEAH.

WE'RE DELETING FOR, YEAH.

I'M SORRY.

SO THEN THAT PROBABLY GETS TO SKILLS, ABILITIES, SPANISH ADVICE AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCES AS WELL.

OKAY.

UM, WHAT ABOUT THOSE? HOW IMPORTANT IS DIVERSITY HERE AND WHAT VALUE DOES IT BRING? WHAT QUESTION ARE YOU ON YOUR ALONDA? THAT WAS PART OF NUMBER FOUR.

OKAY.

I HAVE NO ISSUE WITH IT.

I THINK, I THINK THE QUESTION IS, IS FINE.

I THINK IT'S IT, UH, IT, IT SHOULD SHOW HOPEFULLY AS THEY ANSWER THE QUESTION, UM, THEIR INTEREST LEVEL, RIGHT.

IN TERMS OF WANTING TO ADDRESS THIS PARTICULAR AREA, UM, I GUESS IT SHOULD SHOW MAYBE WHAT THEY'RE IN THROUGH, YOU KNOW, , THEY ARE BY ASKING THIS QUESTION IN THERE IN TERMS OF THEIR RESPONSE.

SO LIKE ME, I DON'T HAVE TO JUST LET YOU KNOW, I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE QUESTION, BUT WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK, RHONDA, DO YOU HAVE A THOUGHT?

[00:10:01]

UM, SO NUMBER TWO IS TALKING.

SO PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BACKGROUND AS IT RELATES TO DIVERSITY AND RACE RELATIONS.

AND THEN A NUMBER FOUR, WE'RE ASKING ABOUT SKILLS AND ABILITY.

SO IS THERE A WAY THAT MAYBE WE CAN COMBINE THAT QUESTION INTO TWO IN SOME WAY, LIKE PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BACKGROUND AND ANY PERTINENT SKILLS AND ABILITIES AS THEY RELATE TO DIVERSITY AND RACE RELATIONS OR SOMETHING.

YEAH.

TRUE.

THAT YOU COULD, I MEAN, YEAH.

YOU COULD COMBINE THEM.

I'M JUST SAYING THEY ARE, TO ME THERE, THEY ARE TWO DIFFERENT QUESTIONS, EVEN THOUGH YOU CAN ASK THEM IN ONE QUESTION, RIGHT.

YOU KNOW, ONE IS ASKING ABOUT WHAT THEIR EXPERIENCE, WHAT THEIR EXPERIENCE IS IN TERMS OF DEALING WITH THESE TYPES OF THINGS.

AND THE OTHER ONE IS, YOU KNOW, REALLY GETTING THEIR OPINION ON HOW IMPORTANT IT IS AND YOU KNOW, AND WHAT THE VALUE IS FOR THEM.

RIGHT.

SO IT SORT OF TO THE COURSE, BUT YOU CAN, BUT AGAIN, I HAVE A PROBLEM FINDING THEM.

CAUSE I DO THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO GET WHY THEY THINK THERE'LL BE AN ASSET TO THE COMMISSION.

UM, LIKE, SO THEN IS THAT A SEPARATE QUESTION? LIKE WHY, WHY DO YOU THINK YOU WILL BE AN ASSET TO THE COMMISSION AND COMBINE SKILLS AND ABILITIES INTO THAT NUMBER TWO QUESTION? I DON'T KNOW.

JUST, JUST A THOUGHT.

YEAH.

I WAS JUST KNOW ONE IS, HEY, WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE? WHAT IS, WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE DEALING WITH DIVERSITY AND RACE RELATIONS, RIGHT.

BUT JUST, WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE IN THE PAST? AND THEN, AND THEN ANOTHER QUESTION WOULD BE, WELL, HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO THE RECORDS.

YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE MAY HAVE SOME EXPERIENCE, A LITTLE EXPERIENCE, BUT WE DO WANT TO KNOW, YOU KNOW, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? WHAT'S YOUR, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON DIVERSITY, RIGHT.

AND YOU KNOW, HOW IMPORTANT ARE YOU? SO IT IS A, YOU KNOW, LIKE, LIKE A, STILL AN IMPORTANT ABSENT, A SEPARATE QUESTION, RIGHT? I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY HAVE TO BE COMBINED.

IT CAN BE JUST TWO DIFFERENT QUESTIONS, UM, BECAUSE YOU KNOW, NO ONE'S EXPERIENCE AND ONE IS LIKE, I'M GONNA CALL IT SKILLS AND ABILITIES.

IT'S JUST WOULD BE MORE WHAT THEY, UM, AGAIN, WHAT VALUE, WHAT ARE THEIR, WE'RE JUST REALLY ASKING THEIR OPINION, WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT DIVERSITY, YOU KNOW, WHICH I THINK IS IMPORTANT, UH, TO GET THEIR TAKE ON HOW IMPORTANT THEY SEE THIS QUESTION.

IF IT'S NOT IMPORTANT, THEN THEY'RE PROBABLY NOT ON THE RIGHT COMMISSION.

RIGHT? YEAH, EXACTLY.

YEP.

OKAY.

SO WOULD THAT, SO WE WILL LEAVE THAT AS QUESTION FOR YOU.

DOES THAT NEED TO BE MOVED? I THINK THAT'S, I THINK THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION FOR FOUR.

AND THEN UP INTO, MAYBE JUST DRAW OUT, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BACKGROUND, ANY RELEVANT SKILLS AND ABILITIES AS IT RELATES TO DIVERSITY AND RACE RELATIONS.

I DON'T KNOW IF MAYBE YOU PUT THAT IN PARENTHESES I E OR WHATEVER SKILLS AND ABILITIES YOU'RE BACK.

RIGHT.

PERTINENT SKILLS AND ABILITIES THAT YOU HAVE AS IT RELATES TO DIVERSITY.

OKAY.

SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT.

YEAH, YEAH.

YEAH.

SOME OF THOSE SKILLS AND ABILITIES, THEY WILL COME OUT NATURALLY AS THEY TALKED ABOUT.

OKAY.

YEAH.

SO THAT'S IT.

OKAY.

SO NUMBER THREE, YOU LIKED SKILLS AND ABILITIES MORE SO THAN JUST SAYING EXPERIENCE AND EXPERIENCES.

CAUSE SKILLS MAY BE SOFT SKILLS.

THEY MAY BE HARD SKILLS, YOU KNOW? WOW.

OKAY.

THAT'S FINE.

YEAH.

THAT'S FINE.

IT'S JUST DIFFERENT NOW.

THAT'S FINE.

OKAY.

NUMBER THREE.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION.

WHY YOU'RE INTERESTED IN, SORRY.

YEAH, I THINK THAT'S AN IMPORTANT QUESTION.

YEAH, I DO TOO.

I THINK THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

AND THE COMMITMENT WE DEFINITELY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT.

AND THEN NUMBER FOUR, WE'RE LEAVING.

WE'RE KEEPING, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE NUMBER FIVE? WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO ACCOMPLISH AS A MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION? I THINK WE COULD UCON WOULD, UM,

[00:15:01]

COULD COMBINE FIVE AND SIX.

YEAH.

YEAH, DEFINITELY.

YEAH.

YUP.

YEAH, FOR SURE.

OKAY.

SO WE WANT TO TAKE THE NUMBER FIVE AWAY.

OKAY.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO, IF YOU WERE TO IDENTIFY THREE PRIORITY ITEMS? YEAH, DEFINITELY.

WE COULD JUST GO WITH SIX.

OKAY.

DOES THAT GET TO MOTIVATIONS AND EXPECTATIONS IF YOU WERE TO ADD, DOES, BECAUSE THE WORD PRIORITY SPEAKS TO THAT.

NUMBER SIX, WHAT INVOLVEMENT HAVE YOU HAD AT THE HUBER COMMUNITY OR OTHER EXPERIENCES THAT YOU COULD LEVERAGE? I THINK THAT'S REDUNDANT WITH NUMBER TWO.

THAT PART I DO.

BUT THE SECOND PART, THE INVOLVEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE THAT SPEAKS TO BEING A STAKEHOLDER AND YOU KNOW, FILLING THE NEED TO GET INVOLVED.

UM, SO YOU KNOW WHETHER IT'S BEEN VOLUNTEERING OR UM, YOU GUYS THERE.

HELLO? I CAN'T HEAR YOU GUYS.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? I CAN HEAR YOU NOW.

OKAY.

SO IT LOOKS LIKE THEY SIGNED OFF AND THEY'RE PROBABLY TRYING TO RESIGN BACK.

YEAH.

OKAY.

KATIE, ARE YOU STILL HERE? YES, I AM.

OKAY.

HI KATIE.

HI.

ARE YOU GOOD? HOW ARE YOU? GOOD.

YOU WANT ANY WATER? YOU MIGHT LISTENING.

UH, WE'RE WAITING.

WE'VE LOST TWO OF OUR MEMBERS AND THEY NEED TO RECONNECT.

SO WE'RE YOU VONDA? ILANA.

ARE YOU BACK WITH US? YES.

OUR POWER JUST WENT OUT NOW I CAN HEAR IT.

OH YEAH.

NOW I HEAR IT.

OH, ERIC, YOU'RE SAFE.

YOU CAN JOIN ON YOUR PHONE.

SORRY.

WHAT HAPPENED? IT WAS SO NICE OUTSIDE.

I KNOW, BUT IT'S STILL PRETTY FENDER.

GOTTA LOVE TECHNOLOGY, MAN.

WHEN STUFF BREAKS, IT JUST BREAKS.

SO I THINK WE'RE JUST MISSING, LIKE, YES.

AND HE'S JOINING BACK.

I'LL KEEP MY CAMERA.

SO IT DOESN'T DISCONNECT ME AGAIN.

I'D BE LISTENING.

IT'S NOT A SAD ISSUE.

WE'RE WAITING FOR ONE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION WHO WAS DISCONNECTED TO REJOIN THE MEETING SO THAT WE CAN HAVE A FORUM AND GET TENURE.

[00:20:48]

OKAY.

IT LOOKS LIKE ERIC'S BACK ON THERE.

I'M GOING TO CALL YOU BACK ON MUTED.

YOLANDA.

IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE MUTED AS WELL.

HEY, I'M BACK BECAUSE YOU GUYS HEAR ME.

OKAY.

I THINK WE HAVE.

YEAH.

YEAH.

WE HAVE EVERYBODY NOW.

OKAY.

SO LET'S FINISH WALKING THROUGH THE DOCUMENT.

I CAN NO LONGER SHARE IT.

CONNECT IT FROM A DIFFERENT LOCATION NOW, BUT LET'S, WE'RE ON NUMBER FIVE, CORRECT? I THINK YOU WERE GONNA, UM, NUMBER FIVE, LIKE FIVE OWL.

WE TOOK PART OF FIVE OUT.

WE KEPT, IF YOU WERE TO IDENTIFY THE THREE PRIORITY ITEMS, WE KEPT THAT.

NOW WE'RE LOOKING AT NUMBER SIX.

AND WHAT INVOLVEMENT HAVE YOU HAD IN THE HUBER COMMUNITY OR OTHER EXPERIENCES THAT YOU'VE GOT LEVERAGE, WHICH WAS SEVEN ON THE ORIGINAL DECK.

OKAY, PERFECT.

OKAY.

YOU CAN'T HEAR IT.

YOU SAID NO.

RIGHT.

FIND THE EMAIL.

JUST LET US GO AHEAD.

AND UM, SO WHAT DO WE THINK ABOUT NUMBER SIX? SO NOW WHAT, I'M SORRY.

UM, TONY, WHEN DID YOU, I'M TRYING TO PULL IT BACK UP.

MY EMAIL.

WHAT TIME DID YOU SIT IN THAT PACKET? I BELIEVE I SAT ON FRIDAY.

YEAH.

FRIDAY OR SATURDAY.

I CAN'T REMEMBER EXACTLY.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MARK C D CAC MEETING PACKET IN THE SUBJECT LINE.

I THINK SEVEN GETS TO THE LEVEL OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT THAT THEY'VE HAD, WHICH IS IMPORTANT.

OKAY.

I THINK THAT, YEAH, I THINK SO TOO, ESPECIALLY THE SECOND PART.

WHAT DO YOU FEEL ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY? UM, I THINK THOUGH THAT THE FIRST PART, WHAT INVOLVEMENT HAVE YOU HAD IN THE COMMUNITY AS IT RELATES TO CULTURE AND DIVERSITY? DO WE GET AT THAT A LITTLE BIT AND QUESTION NUMBER TWO, RIGHT.

JUST THAT THIS WAS COMMUNITY FOCUSED.

YEAH.

UM, IT GETS TO MORE OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IN NUMBER SEVEN, WHERE TWO COULD BE MORE WORK RELATED OR EDUCATION, YOU KNOW, EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE.

THIS

[00:25:01]

IS MORE, HAVE YOU VOLUNTEERED IN THE COMMUNITY? HAVE YOU GIVEN BACK IN ANY WAY? UM, WELL, SO MAYBE WHAT WE SHOULD DO THEN ON QUESTION TWO, IF THAT'S THE DISTINCTION THAT WE'RE MAKING BETWEEN PROFESSIONAL AND, AND A MORE COMMUNITY SERVICE, MAYBE WE NEED TO STATE THAT IN QUESTION TWO, UH, YOU KNOW, GIVE US, TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROFESSIONAL, UM, EXPERIENCE OR, YOU KNOW, UM, UH, WHAT YEAH.

EXPERIENCED SAID IT RELATES TO THEIR SKILLS AND ABILITIES AND WORKPLACE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

I'M JUST SAYING WE PROBABLY NEED TO MAKE THAT DISTINCTION RIGHT.

WITH NUMBER TWO AND NUMBER TWO 70, FOCUS ON MORE OF A PROFESSIONAL SETTING IN TERMS OF WHAT, WHAT THEY'VE DONE AS RELATES TO DIVERSITY.

WE SPELLED THAT OUT AND THEN SIX BECOMES MORE WHAT THEY'VE DONE IN THE COMMUNITY TO ADDRESS DIVERSITY.

RIGHT? OTHERWISE THEY, THEY, UH, THEY MAY ANSWER THE SAME QUESTION.

YOU KNOW, THEY MAY WANT A QUESTION TWO, THEY MAY END UP TALKING ABOUT THE AIR EXPERIENCE AS RELATES TO, UM, THINGS IN DUBAI'S GUYS' COMMUNITY POTENTIALLY.

RIGHT.

THEY COULD, THEY WILL ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

AND NUMBER TWO, I THINK THAT IF THEY DO, UM, WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO JUST ASK THEM THE SECOND PART OF THAT QUESTION, BUT ACTUALLY THE SECOND PART OF THE QUESTION, WHAT DO YOU FEEL ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT NEEDS OF THIS COMMUNITY THAT SHOULD BE AGENDA CITY? AND THE COMMISSION MAY BE REDUNDANT TO THE NUMBER TWO, THE THREE PRIORITY ITEMS. THOSE QUESTIONS THAT'S TRUE.

YEAH.

COULD BE A WHAT A GOOD, BUT WHEN NUMBER SIX COULD BE VIEWED AS YOU'RE THE, WELL, I GUESS, NEEDS, THEY COULD TALK ABOUT IT IN TERMS OF ISSUES, WHAT ARE THE ISSUES? AND THEY MIGHT ANSWER IT IN TERMS OF WHAT THE ISSUES ARE.

AND THEN, THEN WHEREAS NUMBER, UM, WHAT WAS IT? NUMBER FIVE IS MORE SPECIFICALLY AS THAT AS TO, AS, AS TO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO TO ADDRESS THOSE NEEDS.

I GUESS.

I DON'T KNOW.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING? IT COULD BE TWO DIFFERENT QUESTIONS.

ONE IS SAY, HERE'S WHAT THE, YOU KNOW, MAYBE SIX COULD BE MORE OF WHAT THE NEED OR WHAT THE ISSUE IS.

AND THEN FIVE COULD BE MORE, THIS IS HOW THEY ENVISION ADDRESSING THEM.

RIGHT.

BUT AS YOU POINTED, THEY COULD ALMOST BE VIEWED AS BEING MAYBE SOMEWHAT ONE IN THE SAME TOO.

YEAH.

IF WE ADD IT FOR THAT NUMBERS, IF THAT NUMBER SIX, IF WE ADD, IF YOU WERE TO IDENTIFY THREE PRI OR T UM, COMMUNITY ITEMS WERE HIGHEST COMMUNITY ITEMS THAT ARE IMPORTANT FOR THE COMMUNITY, WHAT WOULD, WHAT WOULD THOSE BE IF YOU WERE TO BUY THREE PRIORITY ITEMS, COMMUNITY, IF WE ADD COMMUNITY IN THERE, THREE PRIORITY COMMUNITY ITEMS. SO WHEN YOU, WHEN WE SAY ITEMS THOUGH, I KNOW WHAT WE MEAN.

I MEAN, I KNOW WHAT WE'RE SAYING, BUT SHOULD IT BE MORE, WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE OBJECTIVES THAT YOU ENVISION OR THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH? I MEAN, INSTEAD OF SAY PRIORITY ITEMS, SHOULD WE JUST BE MORE SPECIFIC TO SAY, YOU KNOW, IDENTIFY YOUR TOP THREE OBJECTIVES AND INITIATIVES MAYBE OR INITIATIVES.

YEAH.

I LIKE THAT.

YEAH.

OR INITIATIVES.

YEAH.

I THINK THAT'S A BETTER THAN THE SAME PRIORITY ITEMS THAT DOESN'T REALLY.

YEAH.

OKAY.

SO IF YOU WERE TO IDENTIFY THREE TOP THREE PRIORITY, HUBER HEIGHTS, COMMUNITY INITIATIVES THAT YOU INITIATIVES, YOU CAN SAY, YEAH.

TAKE THE HUBER HEIGHTS OUT AND JUST IT'S VERY COMMUTE PRIORITY COMMUNITY INITIATIVES.

UM, OKAY.

IF YOU WERE TO IDENTIFY PRIORITY COMMUNITY INITIATIVES TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE COMMISSION, WHAT WOULD THEY BE? OR HOW ABOUT JUST MAKING IT MORE SUCCINCTLY? JUST SAY, WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE INITIATIVES OR,

[00:30:01]

YEAH, JUST MAKE IT, JUST MAKE US BE WORDY.

LET'S JUST MAKE IT LESS.

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE INITIATIVES THAT YOU ENVISION FOR THE COMMISSION? YEAH.

I AGREE LESS IS MORE.

OKAY.

OKAY.

IF YOU WERE TRYING TO IDENTIFY THREE PRIORITY COMMUNITIES, INITIATIVES, SO ENVISIONED BY THE COMMISSION, I WOULD JUST SAY, WHAT ARE YOUR, IS THAT A PRIORITY? AND WE SAID TOP THREE, YET, THAT IS YOUR PRIORITY.

RATHER THAN JUST TAKE OUT THE WORD PART AND SAY, WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE INITIATIVES FOR THE COMMISSION THAT YOU ENVISION? OR WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE PRIORITIES THAT YOU ENVISIONED FOR THE COMMISSION? EITHER WAY, JUST YOU FARMED IT ON WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE INITIATIVES, RIGHT? YEAH.

IT'S STILL ENVISIONED, RIGHT? EXACTLY.

I WOULD JUST STATE IT, STATE IT LIKE THAT.

OKAY.

WHAT ARE THE TOP PRIORITY COMMUNITY INITIATIVES THAT YOUR VISION FOR THE COMMISSION? NO, I WAS SAYING, WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE? YOU WANT YOU TO, WHAT THE WORD PRIORITY? THAT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING? I'M JUST SAYING WHAT I'M SAYING VERBATIM.

HERE'S WHAT I'M SAYING VERBATIM.

RIGHT? I'M SAYING, WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE INITIATIVES THAT YOU ENVISION FOR THE COMMISSION? THOSE ARE THE WORDS I'M SAYING THAT WE SHOULD PUT VERBATIM.

I MEAN, UNLESS YOU DISAGREE, THEY GOT THE WORD.

I LIKED THE WORK COMMUNITY.

UM, BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THIS IS A COMMUNITY BOARD AND WE'RE DOING THIS FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

SO I DO LIKE THE WORD COMMUNITY, BUT I ALSO LIKE THE WORD PRIORITY.

SO ONE OR THE OTHER, UM, HOW ABOUT YOU SAY THIS THEN? WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE INITIATIVES THAT YOU ENVISION, UH, FOR THE COMMUNITY BY THIS COMMISSION? OKAY.

BOOM.

THERE IT IS.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU JUST SAID.

SO YOU HAVE TO GO SLOW.

LET ME, LET ME SEE IF I CAN REPEAT THAT.

RIGHT.

SO I MIGHT GET IT WRONG.

THAT'S PRESSURE.

WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE INITIATIVES THAT YOU ENVISION OR THE COMMUNITY BY THIS COMMISSION? I'M NOT AN ENGLISH MAJOR.

SO JUST MAKE SURE, YOU KNOW, I SHOULD WRITE THAT DOWN.

THAT THAT MAKES SENSE.

ENGLISH WISE, TONY, HE'LL GET US TOGETHER.

IT'S STILL ON YOU.

THAT'S MY TALENT CLEANING UP STUFF.

AND I GOT YOU COVERED.

DOES THAT SENTENCE, HOW DID THAT SENTENCE READ TO YOU? TELL ME NO, I THINK YOU'RE THERE.

WE'LL PROVE EVERYTHING.

WHEN I GET A FINAL FORM THAT I CAN LOOK AT AND YEAH.

OH, WE DISTRIBUTED OUT TO ALL OF YOU.

OKAY.

YOU GUYS SEE? YEAH.

WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE INITIATIVES THAT YOU ENVISION FOR THE COMMUNITY BY THE, BY THIS COMMISSION? OKAY.

OR YOU COULD, OR YOU CAN SAY, WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE PRIORITIES YOU WOULD ENVISION PAIN ADDRESSED THE, UH, WELL, YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE, I MEAN, WE KNOW IT, WELL, WE KNOW THIS IS A COMMISSION, RIGHT? I MEAN, YOU KNOW WHAT LET'S TOP.

OKAY.

WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE PRIORITIES? WE ENVISION THE COMMISSION EXECUTE FOR THE COMMUNITY, BUT I DON'T KNOW.

JUST GO, GO WITH THE INITIAL SENSE THAT I HAD.

YEAH.

THERE WAS THAT TIME.

I THINK THE INITIAL THING YOU HAD WAS SOUNDED GREAT.

YEP.

OKAY.

SO, UM, AND THAT GETS TO MOTIVATIONS AND NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY.

AND THEN, SO WE'RE STILL ON THAT PART OF THE QUESTION OF THE INVOLVEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY THAT THEY COULD LEVERAGE.

OKAY.

SO YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT NUMBER SIX, RIGHT? ALUM ENVIRONMENT.

HAVE YOU HAD IN YOUR GUYS' COMMUNITY TO COLLABORATE? YEAH, SO I MEAN, THAT'S ALMOST LIKE, I MEAN, YEAH, IT REALLY TIES BACK TO NUMBER TWO, AS I THINK YOU WERE SAYING, OR RHONDA WAS SAYING, UM,

[00:35:01]

THEY'RE ALMOST ALMOST ONE IN THE SAME, UNLESS YOU'RE UNLESS LIKE, WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE THE DISTINCTION OF WHAT THEIR EXPERIENCES ARE IN THE PROFESSIONAL WORKPLACE AS IT RELATES TO, UM, WHAT THEY SPECIFICALLY DONE IN THE COMMUNITY TO ADDRESS, UM, CULTURAL DIVERSITY? SO THERE MAY BE.

SO I LOOK AT IT TWO WAYS.

WE WANT TO KNOW THAT, THAT WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE BESTED, YOU KNOW, IN THE COMMUNITY THAT ARE ALREADY ENGAGED IN THE COMMUNITY.

SOME PEOPLE MAY NOT HAVE EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN CULTURE AND DIVERSITY RACE RELATIONS, BUT THERE MAY BE OTHER SKILLS AND ABILITIES THAT THEY CAN BRING THAT WE CAN LEVERAGE FOR THE COMMISSION.

SO I THINK THIS QUESTION GIVES MORE TO VOLUNTEERING AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT BECAUSE THAT NUMBER TWO QUESTION IS SPECIFIC TO RACE AND RELATIONS OR DIVERSITY AND RACE RELATIONS.

SO MAYBE THIS QUESTION IS MORE ABOUT INVOLVEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY.

WELL, WE HAVE CULTURE, BUT WE HAVE DIVERSITY THOUGH IN BOTH WESTERN, RIGHT.

IN TWO AND SIX, IT TALKS ABOUT DIVERSITY.

I MEAN, ONE DOESN'T HAVE RACE IN IT, BUT IT TALKS ABOUT THE FIRST THOUGH.

SO MAYBE THIS ONE IS JUST MORE ABOUT YOUR LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT TO, YOU KNOW, HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT YOUR COMMUNITY.

ARE YOU GIVING BACK? ARE YOU SERVING, YOU KNOW, WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE? GREAT.

OKAY.

SO WE'LL LEAVE THAT ONE.

YEAH.

SO, OKAY.

WELL HOW ABOUT THIS? LET ME, HOW ABOUT THIS THEN? SO SINCE THESE FOLKS HAVE, UM, CAUSE OBVIOUSLY EACH INDIVIDUAL HAS, I MEAN, NOT ALL OF THEM.

RIGHT.

BUT YOU KNOW, MOST OF THEM HAVE STATED THAT THEY HAVE, UM, YOU KNOW, BEEN A PART OF, THERE IS TYPES OF COMMUNITY SERVICE, RIGHT.

UM, COMMUNITY SERVICE ORGANIZATION.

SO HOW ABOUT MAYBE THIS QUESTION IS WHAT HAVE THEY ACCOMPLISHED SINCE THEY'VE BEEN A PART OF THESE, UH, THESE VARIOUS GROUPS, YOU KNOW, MAYBE HAVE THEM SHARE WHAT THEIR EXPERIENCES ARE, WHAT THEY'VE ACCOMPLISHED OR WHAT THEY'VE DONE AS A PART OF THOSE, THEIR COMMUNITY SERVICE, UH, ACTIVITIES, WHAT THE ROLE HAS BEEN.

I MEAN, THAT'S, MAYBE THAT'S ONE THING.

I MEAN, IT COULD, IT COULD SPEAK TO, YOU KNOW, UM, CAUSE IT LETS YOU KNOW, THAT, YOU KNOW, HEY, WELL, CAN THEY BEEN A PART OF, UH, OF, UM, THESE COMMUNITY SERVICE ACTUALLY THINGS, BUT YOU KNOW, MAYBE GIVES YOU A FEEL FOR THE COMMITMENT THEY, THAT THEY, THAT THEY'VE HAD IN THE PAST.

RIGHT.

WHICH MAY GIVE US SOME INSIGHT INTO HOW MUCH COMMITMENT THEY'LL HAVE, UM, AS A PART OF THIS COMMISSION, I GUESS.

I MEAN, I'M JUST SAYING THAT'S SOMETHING TO CONSIDER, RIGHT.

YOU KNOW, ASKED ABOUT THEIR, WHAT THEY'VE DONE, WHAT THEY'VE ACCOMPLISHED.

AND BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD SAY THEY MAY HAVE BEEN ON A, THEY'VE BEEN A PART OF SOME GROUP, UM, YOU KNOW, MAYBE JUST A NAME ONLY.

RIGHT.

BUT MAYBE THEY DIDN'T REALLY DO MUCH OF ANYTHING.

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT THIS MAY BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO KIND OF ELABORATE ON THAT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? THE ONLY SUGGESTION I WOULD HAVE IS THAT WE MIGHT WANT TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT LOADING UP TOO MANY QUESTIONS THAT ARE REALLY A SERIES OF QUESTIONS IN THEMSELVES, BECAUSE ONCE YOU'RE GOING TO END UP WITH THEM WITH A LOT OF THESE THINGS, YOU HAVE TWO OR THREE PARTS TO IT AND I'M NOT SURE YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN THE TIMEFRAME THAT YOU HAVE ESTABLISHED.

UH, IF EACH QUESTION HAS TWO OR THREE SUB PARTS TO IT, RIGHT.

SO MAYBE FOR SEVEN, WE JUST FOCUSED ON THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IN HUBER HEIGHTS, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE THAT DOES SPEAK TO, ARE YOU A STAKEHOLDER OR NOT? YOU MAY VOLUNTEER, BUT WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THIS COMMUNITY? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE IN THIS COMMUNITY AND WHAT HAVE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS BEEN? YOU KNOW, UM, CAN WE KIND OF TABLE THAT ONE AND LOOK AT THE ONES THAT WE'VE ADDED BECAUSE IT MAY BE THAT WE CAN COMBINE IT WITH ONE OF OUR OTHER QUESTIONS.

AWESOME.

IS THAT OKAY WITH EVERYONE? OKAY.

SO NUMBER EIGHT OR SUMMARIZE THE LAST QUESTION, THE LAST QUESTION, GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF A TIME WHEN YOU HAD TO HANDLE A SITUATION OR ADVOCATE FOR SOMEONE IN A SITUATION

[00:40:01]

DEALING WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND RACE.

SO WE GOT SITUATION IN THERE A COUPLE OF TIMES.

SO MAYBE GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF A TIME WHEN YOU HAD TO ADVOCATE FOR SOMEONE IN A SITUATION DEALING WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND RACE.

OKAY.

SO WE WANT TO KEEP THAT QUESTION.

I THINK WE SHOULD KEEP THAT.

YEAH.

I LIKED YOUR QUESTION.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT NEEDS TO BE REWORDED SOME, BUT I LIKED THE TYPE OF QUESTION.

RIGHT.

YOU KNOW, WE WANT AN EXAMPLE RIGHT.

OR WHERE THEY'VE HAD TO, TO, TO DEAL WITH A SITUATION REVOLT, UH, INVOLVING RACE OR DIVERSITY.

RIGHT.

YOU KNOW, AND WHEN YOU SAY SITUATION OR ADVOCATE FOR SOMEONE, I DON'T, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, I LIKE FOR THEM, I DON'T, YOU KNOW, I REALLY, THE QUESTION IS, YOU KNOW, YOU WERE FACED, YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAD A SITUATION WHERE YOU WERE FACED WITH A DIVERSITY OR RACE RELATED ISSUE, HOW DID YOU HANDLE IT? OR WHAT DID YOU DO? RIGHT.

UM, NOW WHETHER THEY ADVOCATE IT OR NOT, I GUESS I LIKE TO THINK THAT THEY'RE GOING TO SPEAK TO THAT.

RIGHT.

OR AGAIN, HOW DID THEY, HOW DID THEY HANDLE THE SITUATION? DID THEY, DID THEY ADVOCATE OR DID THEY NOT, OR WHAT DID THEY DO IN RESPONSE, RIGHT.

THEN MAYBE THAT'S THE KEY WORD RESPOND.

GIVE US AN OF A TIME WHEN YOU HAD TO RESPOND.

RIGHT, EXACTLY.

YEAH.

SO I WOULD TAKE OUT ADVOCATE, UM, BECAUSE BASICALLY TELL US WHETHER OR NOT THEY ADVOCATE OR WHAT THEY ACTUALLY DID IN RESPONSE TO THAT SITUATION.

RIGHT.

JUST KEEP IT KIND OF GENERIC AND YOU LET THEM OKAY.

SO WHEN YOU HAD TO RE OKAY, SO WHEN YOU HAD TO RESPOND IN A SITUATION WHERE, OR YOU COULD SAY YOLANDA, GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF A TIME WHEN YOU DEALT WITH A SITUATION REGARDING DIVERSITY OR RACE RELATIONS, HOW DID YOU RESPOND OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT? RIGHT.

SO YEAH, ME ALREADY, I CAN TRY TO WRITE IT UP TO TAKE CARE OF US.

YOU'VE DEALT WITH A SITUATION DEALING WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND RACE.

HOW DID YOU RESPOND? I DON'T HAVE MY FRIENDS.

LET ME THINK.

OKAY.

I'M SORRY.

WHAT DOES IT SAY? GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF A TIME WHEN YOU DEALT WITH THE SITUATION, DEALING WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND RACE, HOW DID YOU RESPOND? YOU SAY DELTON DEAL, BUT YOU HAVE DEALT, YOU HAVE DEALT WITH AND DEAL WITH YEAH.

OF A TIME WHEN YOU HAD TO DO, IS THAT WHAT YOU HAD IN A LOT OF YOUR ADULT AND DEAL IN THERE? YEAH, I DON'T.

WELL, I HAVE, I HANDLED A SITUATION DEALING WITH, WHEN YOU HANDLE A SITUATION, GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF A TIME WHERE YOU HAD TO, UH, HANDLE A SITUATION OR HANDLE A SITUATION INVOLVING CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND RACE AND HOW YOU RESPONDED.

I DON'T KNOW.

I'M JUST GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF A TIME WHEN YOU HAD TO RESPOND IN A SITUATION, DEALING WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND RACE.

YEAH.

I GUESS HOW CAN WE SHRINK THOSE WORDS? YEAH.

SO, SO HOW ABOUT IS, UH, YEAH, I GUESS I'M READY TO WRITE IT OUT SO THAT IT GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF A TIME WHEN YOU HAD TO RESPOND TO A SITUATION DEALING WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND RACE.

YES.

HOW DID, HOW DID YOU RESPOND? YEAH, THERE YOU GO.

OKAY.

YEAH.

THAT'S PERFECT.

THAT'S PERFECT.

YEP.

THERE YOU GO.

OKAY.

SO THE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS THAT WE HAD THAT WE ADDED FOR CONSIDERATION WERE, UM, HOW HAS AND INCLUSION PLAYED A ROLE IN SHAPING YOUR SOCIAL STYLE? YEAH, I THINK WE CAN SCRATCH THAT ONE.

GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF A BIAS THAT YOU HAVE THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER CULTURAL GROUPS.

I DEFINITELY LIKE THAT QUESTION.

UM, AND MAYBE IT'S JUST GIVING AN EXAMPLE OF

[00:45:01]

AN, A BIAS OF A BIAS THAT YOU MAY HAVE, OR GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF A BIAS THAT YOU HAVE YOU SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT SOMETHING SIMPLE.

UM, YEAH.

I'M JUST WONDERING, YEAH.

I'M GOING TO BIAS THAT YOU MAY HAVE.

YEAH.

I AGREE WITH ROD, I THINK KEEPING THAT ONE SAMPLE WITH, UH, LOOKING AT BIAS.

CAUSE I THINK WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO GET THERE IS DO THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT BIAS MEANS? UH, NO, NOT UNLESS THEY'RE, YOU KNOW, PRETTY OUT OF IT.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO COMMENT, JUST ADMIT OPENLY TO BIAS WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY.

BUT, UM, I THINK YOU'RE LOOKING AT A MORE GENERALIZED ISSUE.

YEAH.

LET ME ASK YOU THIS.

THE MASTER'S RHONDA, WHAT IF WE WORK? WE SAID, UM, WHAT IS YOUR, WHAT IS YOUR, UM, DEFINITION OR WHAT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF, OR WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF BIAS AND THEN HOW HAS THAT INFLUENCED YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS? MAYBE? WELL, I THINK WHEN YOU SPEAK TO GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF A BIAS, WELL, MOST PEOPLE WOULD PROBABLY DO ON AN INTERVIEW SETTING, AS THEY WOULD SAY, I DON'T HAVE ANY OF THOSE.

RIGHT.

THAT'S WHAT I WAS SAYING.

DO THEY EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT, THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING? WHAT IS YOUR IDEA? I WAS GOING TO SAY, ASK THEM, WHAT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF BIAS? SO THEY, SO MAYBE THEY CAN IT'S, IT'D BE NICE TO KNOW WHAT THEIR, WHAT THEIR, UH, WHAT THEIR DEFINITION OF WHAT A BIAS IS, IS RIGHT.

WHAT BIAS IS, WHAT IT MEANS.

BUT I WAS JUST THINKING, MAYBE ASK THEM TO TELL US WHAT THEIR DEFINITION OF BIAS AND WHAT BIASES.

AND THEN I WASN'T IMPRESSED, BUT AGAIN, WE WANT TO SAY, GIVE AN EXAMPLE.

THAT'S FINE TOO.

I'M JUST, JUST THROWING OUT SOME IDEAS.

BUT, BUT I AGREE WITH THE POINT THAT WE NEED TO, WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO AT LEAST DRAW OUT FROM THEM THAT THEY, THAT THEY UNDERSTAND THAT WE ALL HAVE BIASES, RIGHT? BECAUSE SOMETIMES PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO ASSOCIATE BIAS WITH CULTURAL GROUPS BECAUSE THEY MAY THINK THAT MAY HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON HOW PEOPLE PERCEIVE THEM, BUT WE ALL HAVE BIASES.

SO I THINK THE CLUE IS TO BE AWARE OF WHAT THEY ARE.

SO GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF A BIAS THAT YOU MAY HAVE, OR THAT YOU HAVE, HOW DOES THAT AFFECT YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER CULTURAL GROUPS? BUT I EVEN THINK GIVEN JUST GIVING AN EXAMPLE OF A BIAS IS SIMPLE.

IT SIMPLIFIES, WE DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT'S AN IMPLICIT OR AN EXPLICIT.

WE JUST KNOW IT'S A BIAS.

OKAY.

SO I'M JUST GOING TO STOP THERE.

THERE'S JUST A GIVE EXAMPLE OF A BIAS AND JUST LEAVE IT THERE.

AND THAT WAS WHETHER THEY KNOW WHAT A BIAS IS OR IF THEY IDENTIFY THEIR OWN, RIGHT.

WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO MEASURE? WHAT THAT QUESTION, GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF A BIAS.

WELL, BECAUSE THEY'RE COMING TO A COMMISSION, THAT'S DEALING WITH RACE AND CULTURAL DIVERSITY.

IF SOMEONE WAS TO TELL US THAT THEY DON'T HAVE A GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF A BIAS OR THEY DON'T BELIEVE THEY HAVE ANY, WOULD THAT BE SOMEONE NECESSARILY THAT MAY BE BEST SUITED FOR WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH IN THE COMMUNITY AS IT RELATES TO THIS COMMISSION? SO AWARENESS, PROBABLY SOME AWARENESS, UM, AND EVEN IT'S THE MOTIVATION.

UM, SO ARE WE KEEPING THE BIAS THAT YOU HAVE? UM, JUST GIVING AN EXAMPLE OF A BIAS, I THINK THUNDER AND LIGHTENING OVER THERE, WHERE YOU'RE AT.

SO DO YOU WANT TO TAKE OFF THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER CULTURAL GROUPS? YEAH, BECAUSE I THINK SOMETIMES, LIKE I WAS SAYING, WHEN YOU, IT'S A GREAT QUESTION, BUT WHEN YOU COMBINE THE TWO PEOPLE MAY NOT BE HONEST.

SO, YOU KNOW, IF YOU, IF I'M BIASED ABOUT CULTURAL GROUPS, HOW TRANSPARENT WILL I BE IN AN INTERVIEW SETTING ABOUT WHAT THOSE MAY BE, BUT IF YOU JUST KEEP IT GENERAL, GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF A BIAS.

UM,

[00:50:01]

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE'RE GOOD WITH THAT.

I'M FINE.

SORRY.

UM, HOW WOULD YOU ADVOCATE FOR DIVERSITY EDUCATION AND DIVERSITY? I'M SORRY.

I MOVED ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION.

HOW WOULD YOU ADVOCATE FOR DIVERSITY EDUCATION AND DIVERSITY INITIATIVES WITH INDIVIDUALS WHO DO NOT SEE ITS VALUE? I THINK WE CAN TAKE OFF EDUCATION AND DIVERSITY.

AND JUST, HOW WOULD YOU ADVOCATE FOR DIVERSITY INITIATIVES WITH INDIVIDUALS WHO DO NOT SEE ITS VALUE OR DIVERSITY EDUCATION, BUT I DON'T THINK WE NEED TO HAVE BOTH DIVERSITY INITIATIVES THAT I'VE NEVER SEEN INITIATIVES.

I THINK WE COULD ALMOST COMBINE THAT ONE WITH, UM, QUESTION SAMPLE OF HOW YOU HAD TO RESPOND TO A SITUATION DEALING WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND RIGHTS.

HOW DID YOU RESPOND? OKAY.

HOW WOULD YOU ADVOCATE FOR DIVERSITY INITIATIVES WITH INDIVIDUALS WHO DON'T SEE IT AS VALUE? ALL RIGHT.

DEFINITELY A VALUABLE QUESTION.

UM, BECAUSE EVERYBODY'S VALUED, YOU KNOW? RIGHT.

SO HOW MANY, KNOW HOW MANY QUESTIONS DO WE, I KNOW WE'VE GOT SIX OR SEVEN.

WE'RE TALKING SIX OR SEVEN QUESTIONS.

HOW MANY QUESTIONS ARE WE? ARE WE, I KNOW CAUSE WE BROUGHT A WALK THROUGH SOME ARE ALREADY ON THE FIRST PAGE OR WE JUST, THANK YOU.

YOU HAVE SEVEN ON THE OLD LAST, AND THEN SO FAR YOU'VE TALKED ABOUT KEEPING TWO OF THE FIVE THEN AROUND THE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS AND THERE'S WE SELL QUESTION ONE AND FOUR, RIGHT? SO WE, OKAY.

SINCE WE'RE NOT COUNTING THE FIRST QUESTION, A RESIDENT OF HUBER HEIGHTS, WE HAVE SEVEN QUESTIONS SO FAR, INCLUDING THE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS.

OKAY.

NO, JUST THAT WE HAVE DISCUSSED YES.

INCLUDING THE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS SEVEN.

OKAY.

NOW I JUST WANT TO KEEP THAT IN MIND AS WE'RE YEAH.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO STRIKE OUT, STRIKE OUT, PRIORITIZE.

UM, SO WE ONLY HAVE TWO MORE QUESTIONS TO REVIEW AND THAT'S WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOU TO HAVE A COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY? HAVE YOU DEMONSTRATED THAT COMMITMENT AND HOW WOULD YOU SEE YOURSELF DEMONSTRATING IT ON THE COMMISSION? I THINK THAT'S A REDUNDANT QUESTION.

YEAH, FOR SURE.

YEAH.

ON THE PREVIOUS QUESTION.

SO, AND THEN THE LAST QUESTION IN YOUR EXPERIENCE, WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES FACED BY MEMBERS OF HISTORICALLY UNDERREPRESENTED GROUPS? THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

CAN WE CHANGE THAT TO BY MEMBERS OF MARGINALIZED GROUPS TO KIND OF TAKE SOME OF THOSE WORDS? UM, OR DO WE WANT TO SAY HISTORICALLY, IS THAT WHAT WE REALLY WANT TO SAY? CAUSE I LOVED THAT QUESTION, BUT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT MARGINALIZED GROUPS? WELL, IS THAT PRETTY MUCH JUST WHAT WOULD THAT BE? PRETTY MUCH THE SAME UNDER REPRESENTED VERSUS MARGINALIZED IN THAT, I MEAN, I GUESS LIKE IT'S THE SAME, JUST TRYING TO CUT SOME OF THOSE WORDS DOWN.

OKAY.

SO WE STILL HAVE HOW MANY THAT WOULD BE 10 QUESTIONS.

NO, NO, WE HAVE MORE THAN THAT.

YEAH.

I MUST BE MISSING A PAGE, A QUESTION.

ARE THERE MORE THAN I MISSED? WELL, THERE WERE FIVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS.

UH, THE ORIGINALLY WAS EIGHT IN THE INITIAL LIST THAT'S BEEN HAD TO SEVEN.

AND THEN ON THE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS, THERE WERE FIVE OF THOSE.

I THINK YOU'VE AGREED TO ELIMINATE, UH, QUESTION ONE AND QUESTION

[00:55:01]

FOUR ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS THAT LEAVES TWO TO THREE AND FIVE.

SO THAT'D BE A TOTAL OF 10 THAT ARE STILL REMAINING.

YEAH.

THAT'S AN ESTIMATE.

HMM.

AND A NUMBER THAT IS HALF QUESTIONS WITHIN QUESTIONS.

SO WE GOTTA GET RID OF, WELL, I'D SUGGEST REFINING A LITTLE BIT MORE DOWN SO THAT YOU CAN STAY TO TASK AND FOCUS ON THE POINTS THAT YOU REALLY WANT.

UH, YOU KNOW, ONE THING THAT WAS BROUGHT UP BEFORE THAT, I THINK THERE IS SOME DISCUSSION IS, UM, SOME OF THE QUESTIONS ARE FOCUSED ON DRAWING OUT INFORMATION THAT'S ALREADY BEEN PROVIDED IN THE RESUMES AND APPLICATIONS.

SO, UM, THAT MIGHT BE SOMEWHERE IF YOU'VE DONE A THOROUGH REVIEW OF THE RESUMES AND APPLICATIONS THAT YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO FOCUS AS MUCH ON, ON THE QUESTIONS.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, TRY TO GIVE SOME OF THE SITUATIONAL TYPES OF THINGS OR SOME OF THE INSIGHTS INTO WHAT THEIR PRIORITIES ARE AND THEIR LEVEL OF COMMITMENT AS THE QUESTION.

THAT'S A GOOD POINT.

TONY SAY THAT WE HAVE 10 QUESTIONS.

THAT WAS THE FIRST QUESTION.

A PART OF THAT.

YEAH.

MY SCREEN.

NOW QUESTION NUMBER ONE.

SCROLL, SCROLL UP TO QUESTION ONE ALONDRA.

YEAH.

SO IS THAT CONSIDERED, IS THAT CONSIDERED ONE OF THOSE 10 QUESTIONS RIGHT NOW? WE WERE GOING TO KEEP, WE SAID WE COULD MOVE PAST THAT RATHER QUICKLY.

OKAY.

OKAY.

BUT IT IS A PART OF THE 10 THAT YOU MENTIONED RIGHT NOW.

IT IS A PART OF THE 10.

OKAY.

I DON'T REALLY.

OKAY.

SO THAT'S SOMETHING I CAN VERY QUICKLY.

UM, SO TECHNICALLY I HAVE NINE.

SO, SO THE QUESTION TO, I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY PART OF THAT QUESTION TOO IS IN THEIR, IN THEIR APPLICATION.

BUT, UM, BUT I STILL LIKE THAT QUESTION, UM, BECAUSE WE REALLY WANT THEM TO SPEAK TO, UM, THEIR EXPERIENCES AS RELATES TO DIVERSITY AND RELATIONS AND RACE RELATIONS.

RIGHT.

I MEAN, UM, I THINK THEY HEAR FROM THEM AS TO AGAIN YEAH.

WHAT THEIR SKILLS, ABILITIES, EXPERIENCES ARE AS RELATES TO THAT.

I THINK THAT'S, I THINK THAT'S A BIG QUESTION THEN.

UH, SO, SO THREE THOUGH IS, IS, UH, YEAH, AND THAT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT WAS REALLY ADDRESSED IN THE, IN THEIR APPLICATION.

SO I THINK IT'S ONE THAT JUST STAYS, UM, THAT LAST QUESTION IS A LITTLE REDUNDANT.

SO WHAT IS YOUR LEVEL OF COMMITMENT AND TIME THAT YOU HAVE TO DEDICATE TO THIS PYRAMID? RIGHT.

YEAH, I AGREE.

I DON'T, I MEAN, I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY'RE GOING TO ANSWER THAT AND ARE WE LOOKING FOR THEM TO TELL US WELL, WHAT WE CAN SPEND 20 HOURS A WEEK? I MEAN, I DON'T KNOW.

I MEAN, I JUST, I'M THINKING IF THERE'S A QUESTION I MISSED THAT.

RIGHT.

SO THAT'S PROBABLY A QUESTION WE CAN, WE CAN TAKE OFF.

UM, AND I THINK MAYBE FOR SOMEWHAT, WITHOUT ASKING THEM WHAT THE LEVEL OF COMMITMENT IS GOT THERE, IF YOU, IF YOU, IF THEY CAN SPEAK TO NUMBER FOUR.

UM, EXACTLY.

YEAH.

IF THEY'RE PASSIONATE ABOUT IT, THEN THAT TELL YOU THAT THEY'RE COMMITTED.

RIGHT.

SO TAKE OFF THE SECOND PART OF QUESTION THREE.

WELL, I THINK THE REASON THAT THAT WAS ADDED WAS WE WERE TRYING TO GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW MUCH TIME PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAD TO COMMIT, BECAUSE THIS IS A COMMISSION THAT WILL TAKE PROBABLY MORE TIME THAN SOME OF THE OTHER COMMISSIONS.

SO WHAT WE WERE REALLY TRYING TO GAUGE WITH THAT WAS THE LEVEL OF TIME, TIME THAT THEY HAD TO COMMIT.

YEAH, NO, NO.

I'M WITH YOU JUST, BUT I'M SAYING THAT, THAT, UM, I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY WE'RE TRYING TO NOW LOOK AT ELIMINATING SOME OF THE QUESTIONS, SO THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE 30 MINUTES.

I'M JUST SAYING WE MAY BE ABLE TO DRAW THAT OUT WITH QUESTION FOUR.

THAT'S FINE.

I'M JUST REMINDING US.

AND I THINK I WAS ONE OF THE ONES THAT ADVOCATED FOR THAT AND MAYBE, UM, YOLANDA AND ERIC, WE DO HAVE TO SAY, TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERS TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMMISSION'S PURPOSE AND THE TIME COMMITMENT

[01:00:01]

INVOLVED OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT.

UH, TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMMISSIONS OF THIS COMMISSION'S PURPOSE AND THE TIME COMMITMENT INVOLVED.

WELL, I, I JUST DON'T KNOW THAT THEY'LL THAT, BUT THEY DON'T GO, RIGHT.

I MEAN, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT.

THAT'S A GOOD THING BECAUSE THIS IS A NEW COMMISSION AND THIS IS A NEW INITIATIVE.

SO I WOULD THINK THAT THERE WOULD BE SOME LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL COMMITMENT THAT WILL BE INVOLVED.

I MEAN, BECAUSE WE'RE STILL DEALING WITH, YOU KNOW, RACE RELATIONS AND ISSUES OF DIVERSITY, YOU KNOW, AND SYSTEMIC RACISM 400 YEARS LATER.

SO THE COMMITTEE IS GOING TO BE GREAT FOR ME.

ONE OF IT, ONE OF THE THINGS, ONE OF THE REASONS I ASKED THIS QUESTION IS BECAUSE I SERVED ON A COMMISSION WHERE THERE WAS A LOT OF COMMITMENT.

UM, AND SO WE WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THIS IS NOT JUST A RESUME BUILDER.

THIS IS SOMETHING YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO ROLL YOUR SLEEVES UP.

IT'S GOING TO REQUIRE A LOT OF WORK.

UM, JUST SAY THAT AND ASK, ARE YOU, OH, ARE YOU GOOD WITH THAT BASICALLY? AND BEN, TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING.

LET'S DO THAT BECAUSE TO KNOW THAT UPFRONT.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT RESTATING NUMBER TWO.

OKAY.

NUMBER THREE.

YES.

SO TELL US ABOUT YOUR PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION AND WHY YOU ARE YOU, DID YOU CHANGE? OKAY.

I DON'T, I'M SORRY.

THE SECOND PART OF THE QUESTION.

OKAY.

AND THEN WE CAN JUST SAY THAT THIS IS A TIME INTENSE COMMISSIONING AND ASH.

THEY'RE OKAY WITH THAT.

I MEAN, THEY CAN, THEY COMMIT TO THAT ALYSSA, ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION AND WHY YOU WERE INTERESTED IN SERVING.

OKAY.

I MEAN, I LIKE THAT YOU ALL WANTED TO ADD.

YEAH.

ARE YOU, WHAT IS JUST MAYBE WHAT IS YOUR COMMITMENT? WELL, WE'VE ALREADY GOT A COMMITMENT QUESTION.

RIGHT? TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION, RIGHT? WHAT'D YOU HAVE IN NUMBER THREE? UM, AND THE TIME, I MEAN, SOMEWHERE WE'VE GOT TO GET TO THE TIME COMMITMENT.

JUST ASK HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE TO COMMIT TO THIS COMMISSION? OKAY.

UM, I JUST, HMM.

OKAY.

ALRIGHT.

SO WHY DON'T YOU SAY, TELL US ABOUT, TELL US ABOUT THE PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION OR TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMMISSION AND WHAT IS YOUR, I DON'T KNOW.

WE THINK IN THROUGH DEEP ABOUT IT.

EXACTLY.

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THINK THREE WEEKS WE, I PICKED THE QUESTION, THESE NUMBER THREE IS IT'S FINE.

RIGHT.

BUT WHICH WE'VE SAID, RIGHT.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION AND WHY YOU'RE INTERESTED.

I MEAN, I THINK THAT'S A KEY KEY QUESTION.

IT GIVES US SOME INSIGHT INTO, UM, MAYBE TO SOME DEGREE, THE LEVEL OF COMMITMENT, BUT IF WE WANT TO ASK THEM MORE SPECIFICALLY, HOW MUCH TIME ARE THEY COMMITTED? I MEAN, I DON'T, WHAT IS YOUR COMMITMENT? JUST WHAT IS YOUR TIME COMMITMENT? YEAH.

SO WE LOOK FOR THEM TO SAY LIKE THE NUMBER OF HOURS PER WEEK OR SOMETHING, OR WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? SOMETHING, BECAUSE IF THEY SAY, WELL, I'VE GOT TWO HOURS A MONTH, WELL WE KNOW WE'RE GOING TO HAVE ONE MEETING A MONTH AND WE MAY HAVE ACTIVITIES.

SO SOMEBODY CAN ONLY COMMIT HARD AND FAST TWO HOURS A MONTH BECAUSE THEY'RE COMMITTED TO OTHER BOARDS.

OR IS THAT SOMEBODY THAT WE WOULD CONSIDER? YEAH.

I MEAN, AGAIN, I THINK IT'S HOW MUCH TIME, HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE TO ACTUALLY TURN IT TO THIS COMMISSION? BECAUSE IT IS A TIME AND CAUSE, AND I THINK THAT WE NEED TO EXPLAIN THAT THAT IT'S A TIME INTENSIVE COMMISSION BECAUSE WE DO HAVE, THIS IS A NEW COMMISSION AND THERE ARE, YOU KNOW, BIG UNDERTAKINGS THAT WE HAVE.

AND IT'S GOING TO TAKE TIME.

WE JUST

[01:05:01]

WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT UPFRONT.

YEAH.

SO IF YOU'RE SITTING ON THREE OR FOUR OTHER BOARDS, I JUST DON'T SEE HOW THAT WILL WORK.

YEAH.

OKAY.

WELL, LET'S JUST, I THINK THAT'S FINE.

LET'S JUST LEAVE THAT.

I THINK WHAT YOU HAVE THERE, YOLANDA, WHAT IS YOUR COMMITMENT? THIS IS, LEAVE THAT WASHING THERE.

SEE HOW THEY ANSWER AND RESPOND TO IT.

YEAH.

UM, LET'S JUST DO THAT.

UM, WHAT IS YOUR TIME COMMITMENT? HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE TO COMMIT? THAT'S FINE.

WHAT IS YOUR TIME? YEAH, IT'S THE SAME.

OKAY.

HOW IMPORTANT IS DIVERSITY TO YOU AND WHAT VALUE DOES IT BRING? DID WE GET TO THAT WITH ANOTHER QUESTION? SO LIKE THIS THEN ANOTHER QUESTION.

UM, AND I THINK IT'S THE QUESTION THAT DEALS WITH, HOW DO YOU RESPOND? HOW DID YOU RESPOND TO A SITUATION? I MEAN, WELL, THAT'S A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT, RIGHT? THAT'S A LITTLE, WELL, UM, WELL I GUESS MAYBE TO SOME DEGREE, I GUESS, CAUSE YOU'RE ASKING MORE, BUT THIS ONE IS JUST KINDA OF WHAT THE OVERALL THOUGHTS ABOUT THOSE SHOULD BE.

RIGHT THEN YOUR OTHER ONE IS, WELL, GIVE ME AN EXAMPLE RIGHT.

OF WHAT YOU DID.

YOU TELL ME IT'S IMPORTANT.

NOW GIVE ME AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT YOU DID.

SO I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY'RE NECESSARILY THE TWO DIFFERENT QUESTIONS, WHITTLE THEM DOWN.

YEAH.

YOU CAN BUY THEIR ANSWERS TO OTHER QUESTIONS YOU CAN GAUGE HOW IMPORTANT DIVERSITY IS.

YEAH.

THAT'S WHAT I THINK.

I'M SORRY.

BY THEIR ANSWERS TO THE OTHER QUESTIONS WE CAN GAUGE HOW IMPORTANT DIVERSITY IS TO THEM.

YEAH.

MMM.

CAUSE IN FIVE, THEY'RE LISTED TOP THREE PRIORITY COMMUNITY INITIATIVES.

THAT'LL GIVE US SOME INDICATION THERE, HOW THEY RESPONDED TO A SITUATION.

UM, MAY GIVE US SOME INVOLVEMENT IN COMMUNITY INITIATIVES, GIVE US AN INDICATOR.

OKAY.

SO THAT'S FINE.

SO YOU THINK A STRIKE NUMBER FOUR THEN? YEAH, I THINK WE CAN STRIKE THAT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UM, I THINK THAT HE, THIS TOP THREE, SORRY, UH, WHAT INVOLVEMENT OR ACCOMPLISHMENTS HAVE YOU HAD? I THINK WE TOOK THIS OUT.

WHAT DO YOU FEEL ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT NEEDS OF THIS THAT WAS TAKING THAT OUT? UM, ALL RIGHT.

NUMBER FIVE, WE KEEP NUMBER SIX.

DO WE SAY WHAT WE WANT TO HAVE 7.6, SEVEN QUESTIONS THAT WILL BE SAID? OR WHAT'S THE, WHAT'S THE MAX THAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR? SEVEN OR SEVEN? I WOULD SAY SEVEN.

YEAH, BECAUSE WE HAVE QUESTIONS.

ANY QUESTIONS? OKAY.

WE DEFINITELY WANT TO KEEP NUMBER SEVEN AND IT'S ALL I'M BACK ON THE LINE.

HOLD ON.

WHAT'S THE SECOND ONE.

AND THEN SCROLL UP SOME NUMBER FIVE.

YOU SAID, WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE PRIORITY COMMUNITY INITIATIVES? I THOUGHT YOU WERE WHY THE TWO SENTENCES THERE TOP? NO, NO, THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO KEEP.

RIGHT.

WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE INITIATIVES THAT YOU ENVISIONED? WE WANTED TO KEEP THE SECOND FALL.

I BELIEVE THE, YEAH, DELETE THAT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS UP ABOVE THAT? ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS WITHIN QUESTIONS? I JUST DON'T RECALL NOW SO I CAN SEE, UM, WE COMPLETELY JUST THAT, SO THAT ONE.

OKAY.

NUMBER THREE.

HAD IT.

OKAY.

TWO QUESTIONS.

I GUESS MINE HAS MULTIPLE QUESTIONS, BUT THAT'S A QUICK AND EASY ONE, SO, OKAY.

SO THERE'S ONLY REALLY ONE BESIDE NUMBER ONE.

NUMBER THREE IS THE ONLY OTHER QUESTION THAT HAS TYPICALLY TWO QUESTIONS THREE.

YES.

WOW.

WELL IT'S WELL, IT'S ACTUALLY THREE, BUT OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO NUMBER THREE, I WAS ASKING ABOUT THE REPRESSION.

OKAY.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF ALREADY UNDERSTANDING ITS PURPOSE.

WHY ARE WE INTERESTED IN WHAT'S YOUR TIME?

[01:10:02]

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU FOR COMMUNITY OR OTHER EXPERIENCES PLUS SEE HOW MANY COURSES WE HAVE SO NOW, OH BOY.

UH, NOW WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.

I'M SORRY.

OKAY.

SO DO WE ASK YOU A QUESTION TOO, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOURS SELF.

UM, WHAT'D YOU SAY, NUMBER TWO.

DO WE JUST WANT TO TAKE OUT THE PEANUTS? TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND SAY, PLEASE TELL US, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND AND PERTINENT SKILLS AND ABILITIES ABILITIES THAT YOU HAVE AS IT RELATES TO THE DIVERSITY AND RACE RELATIONS.

JUST TAKE OFF THE POLICE.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF PART AND JUST GO STRAIGHT TO AGAIN, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND AND PREDICT SKILLS, ET CETERA.

FINE.

OKAY.

TOP THREE BY INVOLVEMENT.

YOU'VE HAD SIX.

YEAH, GO AHEAD TONY.

SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE QUESTIONS.

IF WE GET IT DOWN TO EIGHT, IS THAT, DO YOU THINK THAT WOULD BE SUFFICIENT? I THOUGHT EIGHT WAS A GLOBAL REPORT.

OKAY.

YEAH.

I THINK THE PROBLEM WILL BE, IS TRYING TO GET THROUGH THEM IN 30 MINUTES, BUT YOU KNOW, I, UM, IT'S GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE.

UM, CAUSE HE MENTIONED SOME PEOPLE MAY, YOU KNOW, NOT TAKE UP A FULL 30 MINUTES WHERE OTHERS MIGHT SO RIGHT.

BUT UM, THAT FIRST QUESTION, I MEAN, I KNOW WE CAN GET THROUGH IT QUICK, BUT THE APPLICATION ASKS THEM IF THEY WERE A REGISTERED VOTER AND I DON'T THINK A BACKGROUND CHECK IS AN OPTION.

UM, SO WE'RE GOING TO SAY SUCCINCTLY TELL US HERE.

YEAH, I DON'T, I DON'T EXPECT THERE TO BE ANY, UH, YOU KNOW, I DON'T THINK ANYBODY'S GOING TO BE, UH, I MEAN, IT'S NOT GOING TO WHAT, SO THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET INTO ANY ELABORATE DISCUSSION ON THAT, RIGHT.

JUST TO ANSWER THE QUESTION AND THEN WE'LL MOVE ON RIGHT ALONG IT ALL.

UM, WELL I WAS JUST SAYING, IS IT AS A MEANS OF LOOKING AT SOMETHING TO ELIMINATE? I MEAN, WE MAY WANT TO KNOW IF THEY'RE HOW LONG THEY'VE BEEN A RESIDENT, BUT THE APPLICATION TOLD US WHETHER THEY WERE A REGISTERED VOTER AND A BACKGROUND CHECK IS NON NEGOTIABLE.

IT'S GOING TO, NOT TO THE POINT.

SO JUST TAKE IT OFF.

WE NEED TO DO WE REALLY NEED TO ASK THOSE QUESTIONS, TONY, ABOUT THERE WAS ONE OF THESE THAT WAS ON THE APPLICATION REGISTER YOUR VOTE AREA.

IT WAS ON THERE.

YEAH.

THEY'RE ALL ON THERE.

UM, I THINK SOMETIMES THERE'S SOME CONFUSION BY PEOPLE JUST, YOU KNOW, WE HAD THREE PEOPLE APPLIED THAT THOUGHT THEY LIVED IN UBER HEIGHTS AND THEY DIDN'T.

UM, SO, UH, USUALLY WE JUST ASK THAT FOR CLARIFICATION, BUT IT'S NOT AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY.

RIGHT.

SO I THINK I AGREED.

LET'S JUST, CAN WE JUST TAKE OFF QUESTION ONE? WHAT ABOUT THE BATHROOM? I DON'T KNOW.

I MEAN, I DON'T KNOW IF REMOVING THE QUESTION YOUR INTENT IS TO CUT OFF TIME, BUT THAT'S THE QUESTION

[01:15:01]

THAT'S GOING TO SAVE YOU A LOT OF TIME IN TERMS OF ALL THE, UH, ALL THE GUYS COMPARED TO ALL THE OTHER QUESTIONS.

NO, I AGREE.

I MEAN, I, I THINK MAYBE THE QUESTION ABOUT BACKGROUND CHECK, BUT YOU KNOW, MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE COMFORTABLE WITH, UM, YOU KNOW, UNDERGOING A BACKGROUND CHECK.

UM, WE'VE HAD PEOPLE THAT HAVE INTERVIEWED AND WHEN WE'VE ASKED THEM THAT, THAT, UH, THEY'VE SAID THAT THEY DECLINED TO PURSUE THE INTERVIEW FURTHER.

SO LIKE, YOU KNOW, I, SO I AGREE THAT SIX.

SO I WOULD, SO MAYBE WE DO ASK THAT MAYBE WE'VE MENTIONED THAT UP FRONT.

MAYBE WE ASK THAT QUESTION FIRST.

RIGHT.

UM, BEFORE WE PROCEEDED TO THE, UH, THE REMAINDER OF THE INTERVIEW, RIGHT.

UM, I DO A REGISTERED VOTER AND THEN EVEN THOUGH THAT DOESN'T TAKE LONG, I GUESS, AND THEN WE COULD KEEP IT.

BUT, UM, WELL WE DIDN'T ASK, IT'S NOT AS HOW LONG THEY'VE BEEN ARRESTED IN HUBER.

SO I THINK IT'S FINE.

YES, IT'S FINE BECAUSE WE DEFINITELY WANT TO ASK ABOUT THE BACKGROUND CHECK.

SO I DON'T THINK YOU NEED TO ASK ABOUT THE BACKGROUND CHECK.

I THINK YOU CAN LET THEM KNOW IN YOUR INTRO THAT THERE WILL BE A BACKGROUND CHECK DONE.

OKAY.

YEAH.

YEAH.

THAT'S FINE.

AND THEN THEY MAY SAY, NO THANK YOU.

OR, I MEAN, YOU GUYS CAN, YOU CAN ASK IF YOU WANT, JUST DO IT AS AN INTRO.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

SO YOU WANT ME TO, I WOULD BE MORE COMFORTABLE TAKING ONE OF THESE QUESTIONS OFF.

WHERE DO YOU ALL THINK YOU'RE UNDERSTANDING THE PURPOSE OF THE COMMISSION COMMISSIONER? WHY YOU'RE INTERESTED IN TOP THREE ACCOMPLISHMENTS, BUT ON YOUR LINE, I THOUGHT BACK ON QUESTION TWO.

UM, I WAS SUGGESTING THAT WE TAKE OFF, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND JUST, UH, RESTATE THAT BY JUST SAYING, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND, UH, PERTINENT SKILLS AND ABILITIES THAT YOU HAVE AS IT RELATES TO DIVERSITY
