A series of questions were asked of South Pasadena City Manager Stephanie DeWolfe during the Women Involved in South Pasadena Political Action (WISPPA) January meeting last Saturday at the local senior center.
The questioning came both from WISPPA and audience members.
Among the topics addressed were reorganizing of some departments at City Hall, how to better support commissions, and economic development as DeWolfe says the city will be facing some financial challenges over the next six months.
“Those were the three biggest issues we discussed,” said DeWolfe. “I really appreciated the opportunity to sit and talk with people. From my position, I don’t often get the chance to have those conversations, really hear what people’s concerns are and tell them why we’re doing what we’re doing. It was a great experience and I hope to do it more often.”
WISPPA, which meets monthly, pushes for accountability, integrity, and transparency in South Pasadena government, and encourages strong, well-qualified candidates, and especially women, to run for City Council and to serve on city commissions.
