|Library Community Priorities Survey|
I received my survey yesterday. Godbe Research, from HMB, was commissioned to perform this survey. It is my understanding that this survey cost $29K. Is it worth it? Well, for one person it just might be; somebody is suppose to win a watch! Oh, boy.
So it would appear that this City Council is seeking public input ... or so it seems. Questions aside, and yes they are slanted, I can't help but wonder; This survey costs approximately $29K / a ballot Measure would cost approximately $13K.
Gee, I wonder which method of seeking public opinion would be better, more effective and cost effective? survey from the sponsors of this new library or a ballot Measure?
We already know how this Council would answer that question - hence the survey. Crisis management can be so tricky.
