Truth matters, Chico. It matters in our personal and professional relationships, in our day-to-day interactions with others, in the media, and in the decision-making of our elected leaders. Truth is the foundation of trust and integrity.
This website is the result of a collaborative effort of three concerned Chico taxpayers, former City of Chico employees with over 40 years of combined public service to the community. Our political views vary, but our pressing desire for the truth has brought us together. Truth is an apolitical agenda that stands on its own merit.
We seek to continue to provide a public service to our community and its citizens, many of whom are too caught up in the daily rush of life to pay full attention to the decisions impacting them by their elected City Council, by asking questions and doing research. By reminding those elected and appointed to lead that truth matters.
It is our goal to present the documented truth. Direct quotes from open meetings of the Chico City Council, its committees and commissions; documents provided by the City, with thoughtful and unbiased analysis; and a chronological library of print media stories for your use as background material. Occasionally there may be opinions expressed or conclusions drawn – thanks to the First Amendment, we are allowed those freedoms, and we will openly disclose the sources of our information and the author(s) of the writing. We do not ask that you agree with our points of view in all things, but hope that you will join in the discussion and keep yourself informed.
Above all else, we hope you agree: Truth Matters, Chico.
Mary Fitch, Quené Hansen, and Alicia Meyer
