E. Henderson Middle School. The “Deliberation Days,” co-sponsored locally by the F.C. Citizens for a Better City, the F.C. chapter of the League of Women Voters and the F.C. Village Improvement and Preservation Society, are determined to encourage citizen input and interaction with local government and other officials and leaders on vital issues. A registration form and 10-page draft discussion guide (no author named) is available at www.citsov.org/dfcva. Panelists include F.C. City Manager Wyatt Shields, F.C. Chamber of Commerce leaders Paul Barkley and Gary LaPorta, former Councilman Steve Rogers, Virginia Tech Associate Professor of Architecture Paul Emmons and former VPIS president Keith Thurston. Child care is available and George Mason High School students will lead the Saturday session. The project is affiliated with CitizenSovereignty.org, described as a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to “education about the importance of participation in political life.” Its board of directors includes two Yale Law School professors and its executive director is Bill Corbett of McLean, who is also listed as a member of the Deliberation Falls Church City Steering Committee.
