CCTP013: Working With City Government

with Timothy Barrett

In this episode of ComCap The Podcast, Amy Pearl sits down with Timothy Barrett, Councilmember for the City of Monterey, CA.  After attending ComCap16 last Spring here in Portland, OR, Timothy was inspired to bring 2017’s national gathering to his region. Hear all about how Timothy was able to get local support and interest in community capital, and his ongoing collaboration with the team at Hatch Innovation. Learn what community capital means for the future of economic development in the Monterey Peninsula, including the review of the City’s own economic asset data during a special conference session.

It is certainly inspiring to witness citizens step up and drive the initiatives that help improve their own communities.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Timothy’s background and the reasons he felt motivated to help bring the ComCap17 conference to Monterey.
  • His process for getting the City of Monterey on board for the conference and harmonizing an array of diverse, regional stakeholders..
  • How to find shared language between opposing groups in today’s political climate.
  • Better clarity around the functions and role of city government.
  • Why the economic trends of Monterey require a community capital strategy to retain the talent and resources that are being lured by outside cities.

“When you present an idea, you have to make sure that you present the idea from the point at which that person’s knowledge is ready to accept it.
