An up to date City Stenographer with up to date technology.

Ask Boston City Council that they use Case CATalyst http://www.stenograph.com/category.aspx?id=40001 and LiveNote http://west.thomson.com/products/services/livenote along with Closed Captioning for folks with hearing loss.

Support open government. Improve City Council Communications from the stenographic machine at Boston City Council. Make available the deliberations of the public meeting of the City Council with Case CATalyst and LiveNote. Make available the words of Councilors in the public meeting for public feedback, comment, questions, suggestions. The capability for this is already available if the will is truly to be more transparent.

City Stenographer services, budgeted for with public funds, more complete than only minutes, easier to read through than watching video, using all the features of the technology would make available more readily the transcript of Councilors' deliberations in the public meeting of the City Council, all the words of the Councilors in the public meeting for public feedback, comment, questions and suggestions.
