Discussion 5A

Chicago City Hall is conducting a hearing for citizens’ responses to the Consent Decree. Identify your role as a citizen (mother, student, community leader, business person, etc.). Write a statement for the hearing giving a suggestion for improvements, additions or edits for the Consent Decree, including a rationale for these suggestions.

In at least one of your replies, take on the persona of a public administrator. Offer a response to a classmates’ statement explaining why their idea is or is not plausible. Make sure your rationale is clear and appropriate.
