City Council, District 9
In general, yes. Having a data driven, performance based, standard City Council policy sounds like a good start to help make individual discussions about incentives less contentious. As for monitoring success in terms of employing the hard-to-employ: the most successful programs supporting the entry of these people in the workplace, provide a range of opportunities to meet the needs of the individuals and the employers. As an engineer, I love data, but when we’re talking about the human experience, success is going to start with reaching out to the individuals and organizations that are supporting them to really track their changes to quality of life. GoodWill does good work in this regard.
