I take a very hands-on approach. I have from the beginning of COVID. It’s going to require that we continue a hands-on approach. I believe that I’ve proven that I’m the candidate to do that.The economic fallout and businesses closing down could impact us for a long time.We’ll have to remain vigilant both on the health and economic impacts, and ensure that we move swiftly to address those issues. That’s why, when COVID struck, I moved quickly to get us back to work. You will recall we were canceling meetings. I demanded that we not do that and that we instead get our city government back to work, to put in place guidelines for businesses to operate, to better protect skilled nursing facilities, seniors who live in them, and guidelines for people to move in and around the city. And I’m going to continue that very direct and hands-on approach.A lot of businesses recently have had to rethink their business model. How does the city address those needs?We’ll have to be quick, but not hurry. We’ll have to be quick to get it under control as things change, but we cannot hurry. We have to be thoughtful and comprehensive in our response. We’ll have to be quick to understand the changes that COVID presents. We have to be on top of the changes and adjustments that need to be made as COVID changes, but we also have to ensure that we’ll be thoughtful in our approach. I’m committed to continuing in my hands-on approach and working with my colleagues on the city council.Any last thoughts?I just want to thank the voters for participating in our democratic process. I am committed to working very hard. I was proud to finish first in the primary. We feel very good about tomorrow’s outcome. We’re certainly not overconfident, but I’m honored and humbled to have had such a positive reaction from the residents of Pasadena for my campaign.center_img Community News Your email address will not be published.

Property Ombudsman launches new portal for agents to monitor complaints

first_imgHome » News » Property Ombudsman launches new portal for agents to monitor complaints previous nextRegulation & LawProperty Ombudsman launches new portal for agents to monitor complaints….and promotes senior team member to Deputy role while reorganising structureNigel Lewis10th January 20170904 Views Salisbury-based The Property Ombudsman (TPO) has promoted its Casework Director Jane Erskine to the role of Deputy Ombudsman and launched a new online portal to enable agents and consumers to review cases as they proceed.Jane’s promotion is part of a reorganisation at TPO that Katrine Sporle, the Property Ombudsman, says are part of efforts to provide a “streamlined service that puts the consumer at the heart of the process”.Durham University education Jane (pictured, left) joined TPO as a case officer in 2007 after a nine-year stint working in private practice specialising in wills, conveyancing and probate, and has risen through the TPO ranks.In 2010 she was promoted to Senior Case Officer at the property dispute resolution organisation before rising to Casework Director two years later. She is a regular fixture on the property speaking circuit including at several regional NAEA conferences and masterclasses.Key to the TPO’s reorganisation is a new online portal that Katrine says will “transform the way the scheme reviews complaints by allowing agents and consumers to review live case updates, with additional functions for agents who will soon be able to renew their membership and update their contact systems at the click of a button”.TPO’s new structure, which came into effect last week, means every new case will be assigned to a dedicated team that will manage the entire process from start to finish. Katrine says each team will be multi-disciplinary and include adjudicators, dispute resolution advisors and case management officers.TPO says it is investing in tech as well as human resource and has installed new telephone and CRM systems too.“This is very much a work in progress that aims to provide modern services that are fit for purpose now and in the future, which have been designed to reflect the needs of both consumers and agents,” says Katrine.Katrine Sporle The Property Ombudsman TPO January 10, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Higgins Labor Program examines social justice, labor rights

first_imgTags: Center for Social Concerns, Dan Graff, Higgins Labor Program, Labor Cafe What are the origins of Labor Day? What is a just wage? How are racial justice and workers’ rights intertwined? These are all questions one might discuss for project or discussion group sponsored by the Higgins Labor Program, part of the Center for Social Concerns.According to the Center for Social Concerns’ website, the Higgins Labor Program “sponsors research, education and dialogue on issues involving work, opportunity, and social justice” and was named for Monsignor George Higgins, a priest and laborers’ rights activist.The program is sponsoring several projects and groups this semester to investigate both contemporary and historical labor rights’ issues. Dan Graff, professor of history and director of the Higgins Labor Program, said he and Clemens Sedmak, a visiting professor of community engagement at the Center for Social Concerns, are forming a working group to study the just wage. The program will also sponsor research about the past of the labor rights movement and its Catholic roots, he said.“The U.S. labor movement historically has had a really strong Catholic component to it, and still many labor leaders in the United States are practicing or raised Roman Catholic,” Graff said. “The Higgins Labor Program is in the very beginnings of undertaking a project to do an oral history of Catholic labor leaders.”In addition to these projects, the program sponsors the Labor Café, a discussion group that meets to discuss issues facing modern day laborers, Graff said.“The most casual program we run is called the Labor Café,” Graff said. “Every couple weeks on a Friday afternoon, anybody in the Notre Dame community gathers with interest in talking about a contemporary labor concern.”The program also brings in speakers to discuss various modern-day labor concerns and share their knowledge as part of the Research, Advocacy and Policy Series.“We ask a member of the Notre Dame community or sometimes a visitor to give a talk on a topic of their expertise over lunch, and we have two of those scheduled for each semester,” Graff said. “The two this fall both raise questions about the place of government in regulating in regulating the economy.”The program also plans on participating in the racial justice events happening on campus.“We’re going to do something, probably after the election — definitely after fall break — about some kind of black labor matters theme,” Graff said. “It’ll be participating in this broader campaign. I know student government is doing a bunch of stuff around race relations and promoting dialogue and equality, so it’ll be integrating with those efforts.”Overall, the program seeks to remind people of the importance of work and its human face, Graff said.“We cast our net widely,” he said. “A lot of our efforts are around educating folks, reminding people of the centrality of work to the human condition and raising awareness of that.”last_img read more

‘Mourinho felt betrayed by Pepe criticism’

first_imgFormer Portugal international Paulo Futre believes that his friend Jose Mourinho will have felt betrayed by Pepe after the centre-back publicly criticised the Real Madrid coach’s treatment of Iker Casillas.Pepe recently suggested that Mourinho of showed a lack of respect toward the Madrid goalkeeper, prompting the Portuguese coach to swiftly hit back at the defender and urge him to focus on his own problems instead.Mourinho has always defended him and didn’t expect that from him in return. I think that’s how he would have felt,” Futre was quoted as saying by Marca.“He gives everything for his players. Pepe was one of his favourites and he might have felt betrayed by his comments.”The former Atletico Madrid winger then went on to discuss Casillas’ situation at Madrid and believes the shot-stopper remains behind Diego Lopez in the pecking order for tactical reasons.“With regard to Casillas, it’s the coach’s decision and there’s no need to speculate. We don’t know what the real problem is and should be speaking about Iker’s proven ability. “I believe it’s a tactical matter, but only the coach can answer the question.”Mourinho recently revealed that he had dropped Casillas in favour of Lopez as he likes the latter’s goalkeeping style more.last_img read more
