Contact Us/Comment Form

The Gun Violence Prevention Task Force welcomes your input.  If you or your organization would like to provide written comments to the task force, we encourage you to fill out our online form below and send your comments by October 1, 2019.  

We strongly encourage you to submit more substantive comments online so that task force members have the time to give thoughtful consideration to your suggestions as the group works toward its recommendations.  

The majority of  task force members also voted to allow a small number of attendees to provide brief verbal remarks. A time limit of two minutes per person shall be strictly enforced.  

Verbal Testimony

There will be several opportunities to provide oral testimony.  

1) One full meeting will be dedicated to public comment. This will be a separate meeting from those already scheduled. The date and time will be posted at least two weeks in advance.

2) Eight attendees will be permitted to provide brief verbal remarks during the last portion of each regularly-scheduled meeting. All interested individuals can sign up beginning at 5:30 p.m. Registration will close promptly at 6:00 p.m. At the beginning of the public comment period, eight names will be drawn randomly from those who signed up prior to the meeting. We strongly encourage all individuals to submit written testimony in case their name is not drawn.   

Speakers and members of the audience are expected to be respectful and only speak when called upon. No inflammatory language or attacks on individuals will be permitted. Individuals who use inflammatory language or verbally attack individuals will be asked to leave immediately. 

Task force members will listen to all comments, but will not be expected to respond.

The Gun Violence Prevention Task Force welcomes public comment, but has the right to rescind the verbal comment period by vote should attendees not abide by the guidelines above.
