Former San Jose Police Chief Chris Moore has a new job as senior vice president for Rivada Networks, a company that designs broadband public safety communications for state and local government agencies. Moore retired from SJPD in January after serving the city of San Jose for more than 27 years. It was assumed Moore wouldn’t stay unemployed for long, but his new digs have an interesting backstory.

City Council Meetings at Night Would Allow Greater Civic Participation

If you are like the majority of San Jose residents, you probably work during the day and/or are involved in a child’s education at school/home.

Tuesday is for Meetings

Tuesday is the day that councilmembers reserve for City Council meetings. Closed session council meetings start at 9-9:30am and often continue past noon. The public council session starts at 1:30pm, often merging into the evening session with a short break. If no evening session is scheduled, then the afternoon session simply continues into the evening until the entire agenda is covered. Woody Allen once said that, “Eighty percent of success is showing up,” and many would agree with that statement.
