I think that anyone that has invested as much time and energy as you have into facilitating/building/encouraging democracy via technology deserves to go to this conference.

You use the net (as well as phone and walking) to be the most accessible councillor we have, so I feel happy about the money being spent.

You will learn new stuff, very likely, but you also deserve to be encouraged and upbuilt in your efforts by sharing a physical environment with others sharing your goals.

Have fun!

As a technology based business owner it's hard to find any reasons why you shouldn't go. I look forward to what you bring back from the conference.

Oh, and I have to say, if your budget reflects the end costs, then really that's a lot less than I'd expected.

I think the conference is a good use of funds, since I love the concept of communicating with voters between elections. You've taken this further than any other Kamloops councillors, and IMHO it's a step in the right direction. Even though the costs are not excessive, you are probably correct to worry about backlash though. I hope the rest of council backs you on this.
