Killexams : EC issues election monitoring directive No result found, try new keyword!The Election Commission has issued Election Monitoring Directive-2022 to hold the upcoming elections to the House of Representatives and Provincial Assembly in a free, fair, transparent, and fearless ... Sun, 09 Oct 2022 18:50:00 -0500 text/html https://thehimalayantimes.com/nepal/ec-issues-election-monitoring-directive Killexams : UEFA and European Commission renew accord opposed to European Super League

The European Commission (EC) and the European football body, UEFA, have renewed their 2014 accord endorsing the European sports model - thus reinforcing their opposition to the "European Super League" proposal.

The European sports model - upon which most of Europe’s sporting institutions are built - promotes solidarity across different levels of sport, ensuring that revenue generated by professional competition is reinvested into developing football at grassroots levels.

"By endorsing the existing pyramid structure of European football, based on open competition, including promotion and relegation, the agreement also reinforces UEFA’s and the EC's opposition to the so-called ‘European Super League’ proposal and the pure commercial entertainment model," UEFA said.

"This embodies the direction of European Union (EU) sports policy given in exact landmark resolutions by the European Parliament and EU member states (Council of the EU)."

The EC-UEFA Arrangement for Cooperation was signed by UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin and European Commission vice-president Margaritis Schinas at the European Commission headquarters in Brussels.

It provides a "roadmap" for joint efforts up to 2025.

"Europe’s core principle is solidarity," said Schinas.

"UEFA and the European Commission will ensure that UEFA’s competitions remain a success story embedded in our European model of sport."

Welcoming the agreement as a demonstration of the enduring strength of partnership between the two European bodies, the UEFA President said: "These last years have seen an intense period of cooperation between UEFA and our EU partners facing generational challenges to the European way of life and our European sports model.

"As this agreement signals, our partnership - based on decades of trust and open relations - is stronger than ever and we have a roadmap to develop ambitiously into the future together for the benefit of all."

Next month’s UEFA-led Convention on the Future of European Football will bring together representatives of fans, players, clubs, leagues and the governing body’s 55 member associations, with the EC supporting as a formal observer to the process.

"This is a unique partnership," Schinas added.

"We will keep working within the existing structures and framework in full alignment with European objectives towards serving and bringing together society and citizens."

In July this year a UEFA lawyer described the ill-starred European Super League, which attempted to establish itself in April last year as a "textbook example of a cartel" at a court hearing.

UEFA’s lawyer Donald Slater made the comment in front of a panel of 15 judges at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in Luxembourg, as reported by Reuters.

The European Super League was initially formed with 12 clubs from England, Spain and Italy only to fold within 48 hours in April following a widespread backlash.

Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid and Italian outfit Juventus are the only clubs that have not withdrawn from the project.

Slater reportedly told the court that the establishment of the European Super League could result in more closed leagues.

According to Bloomberg, Slater said clubs looking to be part of the breakaway league "wanted to have their cake and eat it".

"They wanted to continue to participate in national club competitions," said Slater.

"But to be exempt from the principles of sporting merit and solidarity that underpin them.

"After a course of condemnation by fans, clubs and European leaders, their plans collapsed."

Killexams : EC-130J Psychological Warfare Aircraft Performs Final Broadcast
An EC-130J Commando Solo aircraft from the 193rd Special Operations Wing performs a flyover during Community Days at the Lancaster Airport in Lititz, Pennsylvania, Sept.17, 2022. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Tech. Sgt. Tony Harp)

The EC-130J is a particular version of the EC-130 aircraft flying with the Pennsylvania Air National Guard and used for PSYchological OPerationS (PSYOPS). It’s the only flying military radio and TV broadcast platform in the U.S. military, and is capable of broadcasting TV and radio messages on all bands.

The (then) 193rd Tactical Electronics Warfare Group started operating an “airborne information operations platform” in 1968, when the unit received the EC-121S Coronet Solo. In the late 1970s, the EC-121 were replaced by the EC-130E Volant Solo before finally being replaced by the current aircraft in 2003.

Many modifications were made to the basic C-130J to create the EC-130J. According to the U.S. Air Force Fact Sheet, the modifications included enhanced navigation systems and self-protection equipment. But “the majority of the engineering investment went into the integration of the special mission equipment capable of up to 14 simultaneous broadcasts with the same or independent messages on each channel. Keeping pace with information-technology systems, message playback is accomplished using media stored digitally, e.g. hard drives, but the aircraft is still capable of accepting legacy media formats (CD/DVD etc.). In addition to pre-recorded messages, the EC-130J has the capability to conduct live broadcasts. In the last two deployments, the live broadcast option has gained considerable popularity. In its current configuration, the EC-130J is capable of a broad-range of tactics including; Information Operations (Influence) and Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations, i.e. electronic attack.”

In a few words the role of the aircraft is to operate close to a combat zone or crisis area and broadcast various kinds of messages, via radio and TV, to influence listeners, also overriding broadcast stations on the ground.

Throughout its history, the EC-130J was instrumental in the success of coordinated military information support operations, earning the 193rd Special Operations Wing the moniker of “the most deployed unit in the Air National Guard.”

In fact, since it was delivered, the aircraft has conducted operations (and PSYOPS) during Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operations Odyssey Dawn/Unified Protector in Libya, Operation Inherent Resolve, Operation Resolute Support/Freedom’s Sentinel, Operation Secure Tomorrow and Operation Unified Response in Haiti.

Our readers will probably remember the EC-130J Commando Solo (00-1934/STEEL74) of the 193 SOS, operating out of Sigonella, in Italy, which became particularly famous in 2011, during the Libya Air War: the aircraft broadcast  messages both English and Arab language  inviting sailors and naval officers of a Libyan ship to leave the vessel and return to their families, that were often intercepted by radio hams from all around the world and published almost everywhere, from Audioboo to YouTube.

But the career of the Commando Solo has eventually come to an end: airmen from the 193rd Special Operations Wing have transmitted their final broadcast on Sept. 17, 2022, to spectators at the Community Days Air Show at Lancaster Airport, Lititz, Pa., bringing to close a 54-year chapter in unit history.

In the transmission, the wing thanked the local community for their support over the past 54 years before broadcasting the Santo and Johnny song, “Sleepwalk.” The transmission ended with the phrase, “Commando Solo, music off” [music is a popular codeword in the Electronic Warfare community, meaning “jamming”].

“The EC-130J Commando Solo mission has helped keep this Air National Guard unit’s aircraft and its Airmen at the tip of spear for nearly every major U.S. military operation since the Vietnam War”, says the ANG in a public release. “Before bombs dropped or troops deployed in the Global War on Terror following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, this specially modified aircraft was already over the skies of Afghanistan broadcasting to America’s enemies that the U.S. military was bringing the fight to them.”

“Any world event or crisis that our military has responded to in exact history, our 193rd Airmen – and Commando Solo – were likely key components in that response,” said Col. Eric McKissick, 193rd SOW vice commander. “As we prepare to open a new chapter in our history, we thank those who have enabled us to be among the very best wings in the Air National Guard.”

The ability of the aircraft to broadcast messages to adversaries but also vital information to people in the need, was the key of success of the Commando Solo. “This capability has been an essential tool in our nation’s inventory, from the battlefields to assisting hurricane and earthquake-ravaged nations,” Lt. Col. Michael Hackman, 193rd Special Operations Squadron commander said.

The 193rd SOW had three EC-130J Commando Solo in service. While the fate of the airframe is unknown, the unit, affiliated with the Air Force Special Operations Command, will continue operating with (four) EC-130SJ Super J aircraft, that can perform the psychological warfare role, but also other special ops missions, such as clandestine, low-visibility, low-level resupply and infiltration/exfiltration missions for Special Operations Forces by airdrop or airland. In fact, the Super J aircraft is an upgraded “slick” aircraft with larger generators, air refueling capability and a Crisis Support Operations station installed on the flight deck.

Killexams : European Council Approves Crypto Regulation Bill

The European Union (EU) has taken a major step forward on regulating cryptocurrency, with the European Council approving comprehensive Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) regulation on Oct. 5. The development marks another significant action taken by European authorities to ensure that the crypto market plays by their rules. The bill awaits approval by the European Parliament; a vote is scheduled for Oct. 10.

Once enacted, the bill is likely to have a massive impact on the crypto market because of its broad reach. Among the many realms it addresses are the prevention of money laundering, consumer protection, the accountability of crypto companies, the environmental impact of the industry, and stablecoins.

The controversial MiCA law is sure to spark crypto industry debate. It may also be just the first in a series of changes coming to the global crypto market. The European regulation lays the foundation for what could be a new era in operations for major crypto entities.

Key Takeaways

  • The European Council approved the Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) bill, which contains a comprehensive set of rules for the cryptocurrency market.
  • The bill still will have to be approved by the European Parliament; a vote is scheduled for Oct. 10.
  • Crypto entities will have up to 18 months to prepare themselves for the changes, as the bill should come into effect in 2024.

MiCA Addresses Stablecoins, Money Laundering, Environmental Impact

The Markets in Crypto-Assets bill is comprehensive regulation that aims to bring the asset class firmly under the supervision of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the European Banking Authority (EBA).  

A debate over whether cryptocurrency is a security or a commodity is also addressed in the bill. Under MiCA, cryptocurrencies are divided into four categories: crypto-assets, utility tokens, asset-referenced tokens and electronic money tokens (e-money). Cryptocurrencies will be regulated in accordance with their classification. 

The bill's broad focus makes it likely to have a powerful influence on the global crypto market. Among the many areas it attempts to oversee are the prevention of money laundering, consumer protection, crypto company accountability, the industry's environmental impact, and stablecoins, which minimize typical cryptocurrency volatility by maintaining collateral in the form of reserves, often of U.S. dollars.

Stablecoins are a particularly important part of the regulation, and the EBA will be overseeing this aspect. MiCA mandates that stablecoin issuers maintain minimum liquidity to prevent crashes like that of TerraUSD, which was intended to be worth exactly $1, but plunged in value beginning May 9, 2022. It traded at about 3 cents on Oct. 6, 2022.

The reserves of stablecoin issuers also must also be protected from insolvency as a part of the bill. It also calls for “large coins” that are used as a means of payment to be capped at €200 million worth of transactions per day.

Regarding money laundering, MiCA requires the EBA to maintain a record of non-compliant crypto asset service providers. There will also be additional checks in place to ensure that anti-money laundering (AML) rules are adhered to.

EU Moves Quickly on MiCA

The MiCA regulations were proposed in a first provisional draft in June 2022, with some changes and updates being made in following weeks. It does not deal with decentralized finance (DeFi) or non-fungible tokens (NFTs) yet, although officials are likely to tackle regulating these sectors in the future.

While there have been some doubts about some of the details of the EU regulation, the crypto industry has largely welcomed it, as it takes a clear stance on digital assets. Many industry players believe that the European regulation will allow the market to expand because relevant parties understand what the rules of the game are.

While the European Council has passed the regulation, it still requires approval from the European Parliament. This vote is scheduled for Oct. 10. If approved, the regulation is likely to come into effect in 2024. That should give crypto entities plenty of time to adjust to the landmark changes.

The Bottom Line

MiCA is likely to be passed and authorized in early October 2022. This will be a milestone for the cryptocurrency market, as there has yet not been such an extensive set of regulations in place. Other regions likely will look to this regulation when shaping their own crypto regulatory strategies. In the meantime, crypto companies will have to begin making adjustments that will allow them to continue operating in the EU once the regulations come into effect.

Killexams : Waterloo city council to re-examine code of ethics, expand on broadband

WATERLOO — Changes could be coming to how the City Council operates.

An ordinance amendment to overhaul and update councilors’ code of ethics will be considered at Monday’s 5:30 p.m. meeting in the council chambers at City Hall. Two other ordinance amendments making minor changes to the mechanical and plumbing regulations are also are also on the table. These include updating the years in the ordinances, as well as some renumbering.

After last week’s successful $20 million general obligation bond referendum to help build a broadband fiber backbone, a resolution is coming before the council to place arbitrage results on file stating that no payment is due to the Internal Revenue Service for issuing the debt. Arbitrage refers to profits gained from investing proceeds derived from low-interest rate debt into higher-yielding investments or securities.

The city is also looking to take its next step with the project through a request to enter into a professional services agreement with Magellan Advisors, which have been conducting studies for the project, to prepare a grant application to the Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration Middle Mile grant program for the construction of a portion of the fiber backbone network.

The cost for this is estimated at $80,000. However, city documents note that it would be paid for American Rescue Plan funds.

Waterloo could also approve this grant application in another resolution, in an amount to not exceed $15 million with a city match. If the grant is awarded, officials say the city would reduce construction funds that need to be raised from other sources.

Two applications for an Iowa Clean Air Attainment Program grant are coming before the council, as well. ICAAP’s purpose is to help finance transportation projects that would Excellerate air quality. The two resolutions are to install signal control systems.

The first grant application is for $910,000, and the system would be located on Ansborough Avenue from Fitzway Drive to Downing Avenue. The second is for $1.1 million on Broadway Street from the intersection of Franklin and Mullan to the Highway 218 ramps at Airport Boulevard.

There is one public hearing on Monday. The city is requesting to rezone five acres east of 2135 Commercial Street from an agricultural and light industrial district to remove the farming uses.

Killexams : GE15: Automatic voter registration – how to check your registration status, polling location and constituency

With everything that’s happening in the local political scene, it’s becoming more and more likely that the 15th Malaysian general election (GE15) will be held very soon. While no official announcement has been made just yet, prime minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob met with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong today amid calls in his own Umno party to dissolve parliament.

The top party leadership has already insisted it wants to hold elections this year after an Umno Supreme Council meeting on September 30. Secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan said that as such, the PM “will present the proposed dissolution date to His Majesty, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, in accordance with Article 40 (1) of the Federal Constitution.” It’s possible this is what happened during today’s meeting (although this was later denied), despite the fact it was ostensibly billed as a ‘routine’ Budget 2023 briefing.

Either way, it’s best that you prepare yourself for GE15, given that the process tends to move quite quickly once parliament is dissolved—after all, the constitution states that elections must be held within 60 days of the dissolution. Thankfully, the Election Commission (EC or SPR) actually has a handy way of letting you check your voter registration status, your polling location and the DUN and parliamentary constituencies you will be voting in.

Wait, don’t I need to register as a voter first?

Source: Malay Mail © Provided by Soya Cincau Source: Malay Mail

Actually, no, you don’t. Since January 14, every Malaysian eligible to vote has been automatically added to the electoral roll, meaning they’ll have already been registered. This is part of the gazetting of Article 119(1)(a) of the Federal Constitution—championed by the voting rights NGO Undi18—that also sees the minimum age dropped from 21 to 18.

Those turning 18 this year will be able to see their names on the roll between one month and six weeks after their birthday. That’s because the roll is now updated on a monthly basis, instead of only every quarter as before. To see if you’ve actually been registered, you can check the EC’s database through one of three ways.

Using the MySPR Semak app

© Provided by Soya Cincau

By far the easiest way to do so is using the MySPR Semak app, available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. This allows you to not only check voter registration data but also election candidates and results, although the latter two are obviously not available as GE15 has not yet been called.

To see your status, open the app and tap on “Semakan Daftar Pemilih,” then type in your identity card (IC) number, military service number (nombor perkhidmatan tentera) or police service number (nombor perkhidmatan polis). Do note that you have to omit dashes and spaces when keying in your number—for example, your IC number format should by YYMMDDXXXXXX instead of YYMMDD-XX-XXXX.

Once you tap on “Semak”, you should see your name, IC number, birthday and gender, along with your voter information. This includes your locality (i.e. where your registered residence is), your polling district, your State Legislative Assembly (Dewan Undangan Negara, or DUN) constituency—if available—and your parliamentary constituency.

Using the EC website or hotline

If you’re doing this on a computer, you can instead use the MySPR Semak portal (a link to the page can also be found on the EC’s official website under “Semakan Daftar Pemilih,” as well as the website of your local state election office). The process is the same, the only difference being a CAPTCHA below the IC number box. Lastly, you may call the EC hotline at 03-88927018.

Bear in mind that none of these methods listed will tell you the exact polling station location until after the elections are called. The last time general elections were held, the EC updated its database with this information six days after it announced the GE14 polling day (May 9) on April 10, 2018.

Anything else I should know?

© Provided by Soya Cincau

The latest Supplementary Electoral Rolls (Daftaran Pemilih Tambahan, or DPT) for the month of August is available for review until October 14. If you can’t find your name on the electoral roll, or if you want to change constituencies or review your address, you may do so through the EC’s Claim Form C.

One thing to note is that your DUN and parliament constituency is based on the address listed on your MyKad, so any changes require updating your address via the National Registration Department (JPN) first. Once you’ve ensured that your details have been updated, you may get and fill the form, print it and present it to the nearest EC office (which you can also find on the official website), along with your IC.

If, on the other hand, you suspect a voter has changed constituencies illegally, you may object to it by downloading and filling Objection Form D and presenting it at the relevant state election office. Each person you object to will cost RM10 to review. Both forms will need to be submitted before the DPT is gazetted on October 14, if you want the changes to be reflected in the current electoral roll.

Lastly, de facto law minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar has announced that the EC has extended the voting hours, in order to Excellerate efficiency and smoothen the voting process. Citizens will now have an additional hour to cast their votes, from 8am to 6pm in Peninsular Malaysia and from 7.30am to 5.30pm in Sabah and Sarawak.

Once you’ve ensured your name is on the roll and Checked your details, the only thing left for your to do is to show up on polling day at your specified polling station. Happy voting!

Killexams : Latino L.A. City Council members' racist slurs expose the problem that undercuts progress

Some may want to see the explosive, racist diatribes of a handful of prominent Los Angeles City Council members as an unfortunate incident that will eventually fade away. They might dismiss the remarks revealed in a leaked audio as isolated and confined to a few Latino leaders.

But the reality is that such prejudice from Latino to Latino and Latino to other racial groups is not so uncommon. Call it anti-Black racism, colorism, classism — it all adds up to a destructive strain that is not so hidden in Latino culture.

As the Latino population increases and diversifies, the persistence of racism threatens to dissolve hard-won Latino political and civil rights gains and fracture delicately balanced coalitions with other racial groups.

That was on stark display in the conversation among former Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez, council members Kevin De León and Gil Cedillo and Los Angeles County Federation of Labor President Ron Herrera, who resigned Monday.

Martinez, the council’s first Latina president, resigned from the leadership role Monday and resigned her council seat Thursday. She stepped down after a recording revealed she had called her colleague Mike Bonin’s then-2-year-old son, who is Black, a “changuito,” Spanish for “monkey.”

“There are many Nury Martinezes,” said Fordham University law professor Tanya K. Hernández, the author of the recently published book “Racial Innocence: Unmasking Latino Anti-Black Bias and the Struggle for Equality.”

“The idea is: ‘Oh no, not us. We can’t be harboring any kind of racial animosity.’ We need to put a stop to this shield against reckoning because of our Latino ancestry, as if that made us somehow immune to the legacies of slavery,” said Hernández, who is Afro Latina.

The racist remarks extended beyond Blacks to the embedded prejudice against Indigenous Latinos that is pervasive in Latin America and in the U.S., a remnant of colonialism and a version of white supremacy.

Martinez mocked Indigenous Mexican immigrants of Oaxacan descent living in Los Angeles’ Koreatown, calling them “short, dark people.” “I don’t know where these people are from. I don’t know what village they came [from], how they got here. ... Tan feos (they’re ugly),” she says in the audio recording.

None of those who were in the room confronted Martinez about the remarks or denounced them as racist.

Latinos with darker skin face entrenched racism in colloquial Spanish, in which the word used to describe them is “negro.” It is not unusual for families to forbid their children to marry Blacks or warn them to stay out of the sun lest their complexions get too dark.

Hernández said that kind of racism against dark-skinned people goes beyond rhetoric and that it has real-world implications.

“When I did research for the book ... what I found is in spaces where Latinos have discretionary power, they are employers, supervisors in the workplace, they are homeowners or renting apartments, gatekeepers of public accommodations, hotels, night clubs, restaurants. ... In all these public places I found discrimination cases where Latinos were the culprits, the aggressors of the exclusion based on African ancestry.”

Undercutting issues of representation

The council members were discussing redistricting, a process rife with racism and discrimination and oppression of votes of communities of color.

Latino growth in Los Angeles, as in other cities, has occurred in areas where Black populations dominated but have declined, setting up competitions between groups for political representation.

After decades of navigating and negotiating competing interests, “to say that everything has been a bushel of roses is not being honest, because there has been, in fact, competition between the communities for representation, for resources or the ability to have influence on public policy,” said Arturo Vargas, the executive director of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, which called for Martinez’s resignation.

But elected officials’ behavior and actions should not be used to define the relationship between communities, Vargas said. He and others expressed fear that the leaders' words could sever fragile relationships crafted between racial and ethnic groups, particularly Blacks and Latinos, in the city.

The council members also mocked the Community Coalition, known as CoCo, which works to upend systematic racism and Excellerate relations between Black and Latino people in South Los Angeles.

“These conversations were about Black erasure at the expense of Latino power. And that is wholeheartedly backward regressive — it’s Black voter suppression. And Latinos should take no part of Black voter suppression,” said Alberto Retana, the president and CEO of the Community Coalition, who is Afro Latino

Although Los Angeles is almost half Hispanic, Latinos represent less than a third of the council’s 15 districts, which has highlighted long-standing political tension and concern among Latinos that they are not represented fairly. Black people account for 9% of the city’s population and hold 20% of council seats.

While the state of California uses an independent commission to draw its federal congressional districts, the Los Angeles City Council draws its own districts. An independent commission draws lines for Los Angeles, but its maps are provided only as advisory guides, said Vargas, who has served on two advisory commissions.

The City Council rejected the advisory commission's redistricting recommendations this redistricting cycle and drew its own lines, he said. The commission proposed preserving three African American seats and creating a district in the San Fernando Valley where Latinos are not the majority but are in high enough numbers to affect its council member’s election.

“But that came at the expense of making significant changes to existing Latino majority districts in the San Fernando Valley, to which at least one incumbent there did not take well to,” Vargas said. “It just goes to show how there is a difference between the interest of the community and the interest of incumbents.”

In the recording, Martinez complains about the redistricting commission's proposal to remove assets from her district. "If you’re going to talk about Latino districts, what kind of districts are you trying to create?” she asks her colleagues in frustration. “Because you’re taking away our assets. You’re just going to create poor Latino districts with nothing?”

Michele Siqueiros, a civic leader who is the president of the Campaign for College Opportunity, said the leaders “in their narrow ignorance” were focusing on South Los Angeles, where Black leadership has supported Black and brown coalitions and leaders. Instead, she said, they should be growing Latino leadership in the San Fernando Valley and in the Los Angeles Harbor region, which is home to many Latinos, many of whom are represented by white council members.

A leading scholar on equity, Pedro Noguera, an education professor at the University of Southern California, said Latino leaders should have focused on “what do we have in common? And in what ways could we advance a political agenda that serves our interests?”

“That’s not what these politicians were thinking about. They were thinking, ‘How do we take power away from Blacks?’” said Noguera, who is Afro Latino.

Retana said: “There isn’t one major equity fight in Los Angeles that hasn’t involved a Black and brown coalition. That’s the story of victory in L.A., and it’s a story that we have to continue to preserve.”

'They are inciting hate'

In the recorded comments, Martinez, who is Mexican American, targeted Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, who is of Cuban heritage. "F--- that guy, he's with the Blacks," she said.

Her offensive comments about Oaxacans was reminiscent of the anti-Indigenous racism at the Academy Awards in 2019, when nominee Yalitza Aparicio, of Oaxaca, endured parodies and rants from light-skinned Latino actors in Mexico.

Zapotecs, or Indigenous people of Oaxacan descent, number about 200,000 in Los Angeles County, one of the largest Oaxacan communities outside Mexico.

Hernández noted that Oaxaca is a place where there are identifiable Afro Mexicans.

Odilia Romero, a co-founder and the executive director of Communidades Indigenas en Liderazgo, or Indigenous Communities in Leadership, said she and the organization hear similar remarks in their daily work and “survived it.” But when they came from elected officials, she was appalled.

“They are inciting hate,” Romero said. “This will come with hate crimes. This will lead to our human rights violations.”

Gabriel Sandoval, who was a civil rights attorney in the Obama administration, said it is important that the elected officials’ comments do not undermine work that has been done.

“The most important role for any leader in L.A. is to be a coalition builder," Sandoval said. "This is the second-largest, most diverse city in the nation — and that is what is required from any person who holds a position of public trust."

Killexams : VOTERS GUIDE: Robbinsdale City Council, Wards 3 and 4

The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 8. In Robbinsdale, two seats on the City Council are up for election. Every election season, the Sun Post compiles information about local candidates on the ballot to better inform the votes of our readers.

The winner in each ward will take their oath of office and begin serving in January.

Read on to learn about this year’s candidates for Ward 3 and 4 in Robbinsdale.

Ward 3

Candidates running for the Ward 3 council seat are Mia Z Parisian and David Robins.

The two collected the most votes from a six-person candidate pool in the August primary election. In the primary, Parisian was the top vote collector, besting Robins by 114 votes.

Members of the Robbinsdale City Council serve four-year terms. The current Ward 3 councilmember, George Selman, has served four terms on the council and has indicated he will not run in the 2022 election.

Ward 3 includes residents living in the southwestern portion of the city. The Ward 3 polling location is at Elim Lutheran Church, 3978 West Broadway.

What sets you apart from your opponent?

There are two key differences. I won’t accept endorsements from any party, unlike Mia. City Council is intended to be a non-partisan race, so how can you represent everyone’s opinions when you’ve already chosen a side? The other, of course, is the Blue Line Extension. I’m not a fan. I believe there are alternatives in public transit that could resolve all of Robbinsdale’s concerns, but they’re being overlooked by the Met Council.

The METRO Blue Line Extension is planned along County Road 81 in Robbinsdale, with a potential for two boarding stations and a park and ride lot. What is your position on the project office’s plans thus far?

I don’t want higher taxes, so I can’t support the light rail. It’s too bad, really, since I’m a big advocate of public transit. But the news is out about the Green Line, the largest and most costly public works project in Minnesota history, and it doesn’t bode well for the Blue Line, either. It took a bipartisan group in our state senate to reveal the truth: The light rail initiative is a mismanaged boondoggle that will never be financially self-sufficient.

This leaves taxpayers to pick up the costs. The Met Council’s blatant disregard of Robbinsdale and Crystal’s city councils is shocking to anyone that values the democratic process. In the end, if we can’t find a way to stop this train, then I’ll work with all parties to ensure that whatever changes are made will Excellerate our infrastructure, account for pedestrian safety and minimize disruption to our businesses.

Is there a campaign promise that you plan to implement if elected?

Politicians make promises that they just can’t keep, and I’m not a politician. I don’t see City Council as a pathway to higher office. I’m just a concerned neighbor who wants to help his community. Given that, I will make this assurance, however:

• I will work to better the lives of every resident of Robbinsdale.

• I will respond to you with urgency.

• I will value and consider your opinions, even when they challenge my own.

Mia Z Parisian

Tell us a little about yourself.

My family moved to Robbinsdale in 1998, where I attended Robbinsdale schools TLC (formerly on Regent Avenue) and Robbinsdale Cooper High School. I graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield. I am a former lecturer (Chiang Mai University). I now own my childhood home. I work as an instructional designer for a tech company. I have served as an election judge in Ward 3, and currently serve as chair of the Robbinsdale Planning Commission.

If a voter wants to contact me, the best way to reach me is...

What sets you apart from your opponent?

I’ve spent most of my life in Robbinsdale, and have a firm understanding of our town’s culture, evolution, and stories over the last 20+ years. I served Robbinsdale by working at the Lee Park warming house as a student, teaching wellness classes through parks and recreation as a young adult, and serving Robbinsdale now through involvement in local activism groups as well as our local government. I am the candidate who is known and trusted by our local elected officials.

The METRO Blue Line Extension is planned along County Road 81 in Robbinsdale, with a potential for two boarding stations and a park and ride lot. What is your position on the project office’s plans thus far?

Thank you, Sun Post, for communicating and confirming this project information. Residents are still wondering if or where this federally- and county-funded project will take place. The project is well underway, and it’s located along Bottineau Boulevard in Robbinsdale (Hennepin County-owned corridor). I am pro-transit, and I’m glad to have the LRT serving Robbinsdale. At the time of publishing this Voter’s Guide, I’ve seen some of the latest project office plans via my work on the Robbinsdale Planning Commission. I fully understand the importance of having a true advocate for Robbinsdale and its residents involved in the feedback process. I will work to ensure Robbinsdale gets the amenities we deserve, with safety and mobility as top priorities. I care deeply about the charm and legacy of Robbinsdale, and I want to ensure the project team respects those design needs.

Is there a campaign promise that you plan to implement if elected?

There are too many areas of local government that beg the question from residents, “How can I understand this better?” Constituents have questions like, “How can I get this in front of my representative?” or “What are open meeting laws?” or “What do our commissions do?” My promise is to use my expertise as an educator and instructional designer to better educate residents about processes in local government with the intention of removing barriers to allow more people to be informed and involved. I don’t see this City Council seat as a means to put solely my opinions forward. I see this as an opportunity to amplify more voices at the desk of the City Council. I promise to actively listen, and ask the right questions with you in mind.

Ward 4

Candidates running for the Ward 4 council seat are incumbent Pat Backen and Aaron Wagner.

The two were selected by voters in the August primary election out of a four-person candidate pool. In that election, Wagner narrowly received the most votes: 37 more than incumbent Backen.

Backen failed to submit voter guide responses to the Sun Post in time for publication.

Members of the Robbinsdale City Council serve four-year terms.

Ward 4 includes residents living in the southernmost portion of the city. The Ward 4 polling location is at the North Memorial Health Training Center, 3500 France Ave. N.

Aaron Wagner

Tell us a little about yourself.

I was born at North Memorial, grew up in the Anoka area, received an associates degree in information technology from Anoka-Ramsey Community College, and bought my house here five years ago. I am a union member and work for Minnesota State Retirement System as a cloud engineer, and have been active in labor politics for a number of years.

If a voter wants to contact me, the best way to reach me is...

What sets you apart from your opponent?

I have a fresh new perspective and energy that I am ready to bring to city hall. I am present and active in the community, so I understand what our needs are. My campaign is rooted in the working class movement here in Robbinsdale, and I have a platform and vision that reflects that.

The METRO Blue Line Extension is planned along County Road 81 in Robbinsdale, with a potential for two boarding stations and a park and ride lot. What is your position on the project office’s plans thus far?

I fully support the Blue Line Extension. Allowing the project to move forward will increase ease of access to all that Robbinsdale has to offer. We should be doing everything we can to bring more people to our parks and businesses.

Public transit infrastructure, like this project, help reduce emissions and our dependency on fossil fuels. We owe it to future generations to use every tool at our disposal to fight climate change. Improved crosswalks, bike lanes, updated utility lines, and a whole lot more can be done along the rail route as well.

Instead of trying to hinder progress, as I fear the current council is doing, we should instead be at the table with Hennepin County and the Met Council, so we can get the best outcome as possible.

Is there a campaign promise that you plan to implement if elected?

I promise to be accessible and available to the residents of Ward 4. At the end of the day, we are all neighbors and I will always be approachable as one. I will pick up the phone if you call, text back if messaged, and reply to your emails. This office is all of ours, so it is important to me to create an environment where we all feel empowered. This will help amplify voices in our community that normally get overlooked, and I hope by doing that we can create a Robbinsdale that is a better place to work and to live.

Killexams : City Council prepared to dock Mayor's salary if airfare upgrades aren't reimbursed

Council President Helena Moreno says the city charter gives them the power to reduce the mayor's salary if she doesn’t pay for first class tickets.

NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans City Council President Helena Moreno and Vice President JP Morrell say the city charter allows for the City Council to set the mayor's salary, and if Mayor LaToya Cantrell does not pay back her travel expenses, they may dock her salary by around $30,000 in 2023.

In an interview with the Eyewitness Morning News, Moreno and Morrell were adamant in their request that the mayor reimburse the city after she's taken a series of overseas trips with first class tickets over the course of the year.

"I think what's interesting is that she followed the rest of the policy as far as turning in documentation, paperwork, etcetera, with her travel," Moreno said. "But the one thing she didn't follow was reimbursing the city for upgraded luxury travel. Many of us councilmembers are incredibly disappointed by this and hope she comes to her senses and pays the city back."

Mayor Cantrell has previously refused to pay the city roughly $29,000 she charged this year to upgrade her city air travel to business and first-class.

Earlier this month, Cantrell said that all expenses she incurred while doing business on behalf of the city do not need to be reimbursed.

The city’s travel policy states, “Employees are required to purchase the lowest airfare available…Employees who choose an upgrade from coach, economy, or business class flights are solely responsible for the difference in cost.”

In March, the mayor spent more than $2,800 to fly first-class to Miami for a U.S. Conference of Mayors gathering. That’s about nine times the $342 NOPD Superintendent Shaun Ferguson paid to fly economy to the same meeting. Other staffers paid $677.

"I hope she comes to her senses and pays the city back, because if not, I believe the council is going to be forced to move forward with an ordinance that docks her pay in 2023 by roughly $30,000," Moreno said.

The city charter allows the city council to set the mayor's yearly salary.

"You look at all the city employees in government currently, who are required by policy to reimburse the city for all their travel expenses above what's approved, and for the mayor to publicly take the position of 'I am special' and all of you single, Black women in government who are paying for those upgrades, you do you and I (am going to) do me," Morrell said.

The excerpt regarding the mayor's pay begins around the 9:40 mark of the video above.
