3. Continue discussion of potential funding priorites and polling results, and consider finalizing priorities and recommendations to submit to the Board of Supervisors.
  Chair Moore began by discussing the process for the evening’s discussion.  Continuing with the use of the Presentation Summary (revised 8/6/21) and beginning with the “Immigration/Racial Equity” category, the MXCAB were asked to ask clarifying questions and or make comments on categories.  At the conclusion of the category discussions, the Chair announced that the MXCAB would repeat the same poll that had been originally taken on August 25th.  MXCAB participants were reminded that the tool was a poll to work towards consensus and not a vote.  Fifteen minutes were provided for the poll (poll results are attached).  At approximately 6:20 PM, the MXCAB took at ten-minute break.  At the conclusion of the break the MXCAB discussed next steps.  Many suggestions were made.
At the conclusion of the MXCAB members’ comments, Chair Moore asked for public comment to conclude the meeting at approximately 8:00 PM.  Public comments were received from nine individuals. The meeting ended with the MXCAB recognizing that additional meetings were necessary.  Subsequent to the meeting ending, the next meeting is scheduled for Friday, September 17 at 3:30 PM.
