1. They don't share information and data.
2. They don't agree on goal-setting.
3. They are negative when at work. It is not a creative or positive workplace from what I saw when I watched the budget meeting.
4. They won't even decide on goals before making drastically important decisions.
5. The prothonatary isn't assertive with them. They don't work as a team.
6. They often only listen to people who have "paid their dues".
7. They allow for negativity.
8.Many of them throw wet blankets on new ideas.
9. They're not inclusive.
10. They don't understand the difference between live streaming and vodcasting.
11. They haven't used their time on city council to get an associates degree, at the very least. I say this because many of them don't have a college degree.
12. They don't listen to people such as economists.
13. They're not open-minded.
14. They aren't very diverse.
15. I was told by one Chief-of-Staff that his boss, "doesn't take the bloggers seriously and neither does he."
16. They don't try many new things.
17. They tend to talk to people my age when they want to get them in their bed...or they want the young people to be their minions.
18. I wouldn't evaluate them as a group that will achieve a goal together.
19. "Millennials are looking for leaders with honesty and integrity." Do I really need to expand on how that relates to City Council?
20. Goals are not clearly stated, progress is not always assessed, success factors are not explicitly described and stated.
I do not mean this for everyone on council. Bill Peduto and Patrick Dowd definitely stood out to me as Millenial-friendly and they have since I've known them.
