Minor technical edits: The full committee's name is "Charter Review Committee" not "charter reform commission" (mid-paragraph), and the subcommittee's name should probably be "Review" not "Renewal" (1st sentence).

I wouldn't move the question up.

Another suggestion:-Too many candidates to learn about

"right now, each City Councilor represents the entire City. It's possible to change this so that each Councilor represents the neighborhood they live in. Would you like this change?"
Carol
01:29:23
"my area of the city" instead of "neighborhood"

As opposed to the current system, where you just vote for oneā€¦
Carol
01:34:57
Q7 flipped wording would be more accurate: It's possible to change this so that each area of the city would have its own councilor.

"right now, you vote for one candidate. Would you prefer to vote by putting candidates in order of preference?"
Carol
01:38:45
Suggestion: Would you prefer to say how much you like each candidate rather than voting for just one candidate?

Voting for mayor would be affected by voting method, so leave in.

"Do you think your vote for City Council matters?"
Shelley Denison
01:48:28
doesn't really get at if change is needed
Dana Stroud (she/they)
01:49:24
Do you feel like you are able to take part in city decisions that impact your life? If not, why?

Gresham's City Council has six Councilors. These Councilors are voted on by every voter in the City and they serve for four years. When someone is running for City Council, they win the election if they get more votes than the other people running. Do you think the way we elect City Councilors is working?

perhaps "community area"
Carol

Add to the end of 2nd sentence on at-large: "and councilors might live in one area of the city rather than spread throughout the city."
Carol
02:13:10
Currently they are spread out.
