Gookin Still Votes Vs. Appointments

From City Clerk Renata McLeod's minutes of Jan. 15 council meeting:

Motion by Goodlander, seconded by McEvers to approve the appointment of Tom Messina and Ben Wolfinger to the Personnel Appeals Board and Barbi Harrison to the Childcare Commission.  CouncilmanGookin clarified that he has voted no on the appointments for several months and wanted to let the public know it is about the process not the people, and that he felt the process should be more transparent.  He further stated that he would continue to vote no.   Motion carried with Gookin voting No. Complete minutes here.

Question: Dan, are you out there? Can you explain why you don't think city appointment process is transparent enough?
