• The word “public” is more encompassing than “political”.
o “Public” addresses the large part of our mission which is to offer opinions and advocate for positions concerning the well-being of the City of South Pasadena, and to provide information to the electorate regarding City Council candidates and city issues.
o “Public” addresses the encouragement of women to serve on commissions which are not political.
o “Public” addresses WISPPA’s mission to push for accountability, integrity and transparency in our city government
o “Public” does not preclude our mission to encourage well qualified candidates to run for office.
• “Political” has negative connotations that discourages new members
