B Square Elsewhere: Bloomington’s clerk weighs in on city council meetings

Bloomington’s city clerk, Nicole Bolden, was quoted on the City Council Chronicles last Sunday describing her first run for the elected office of city clerk: “When I decided to run for city clerk, my family laughed at me. They said, ‘How on Earth are you going to be able to handle those meetings that go past your bedtime?'”

The Chronicles is a website maintained by Michael Karlik. He documents city council meetings across the world.

Karlik describes it like this:

Somewhere out there, a city council meeting is happening. And you’re not watching it. But I am. Each week, I bring you the highlights, lowlights, and weirdlights from places you don’t live.

Last Sunday’s edition of the Chronicles features an interview with Bloomington’s city clerk, Nicole Bolden. The interview is based in part on the council’s meetings in December last year.
