The first 25 minutes were presented (using a laptop computer) by virtual-reality animated (talking/moving) computer characters. The computer characters described what the Councilwoman did in her first six months in office...which includes compiling a detailed computer database/inventory of conditions on 5th district neighborhood streets and their infrastructure needs. The computer characters then introduced Councilwoman Schipske in-person who used more computer graphics to detail several 5th district initiatives that she plans to launch in 2007. Councilwoman Schipske also announced creation of a new website for 5th district neighborhood groups (in addition to her ongoing internet blog) and fielded audience Q & A. Among city officials attending (not a complete list): Councilmembers O'Donnell and Reyes Uranga; reps from the Mayor's office and other Council offices; senior management from several departments (including Police Chief Batts, Parks/Rec Dir Phil Hester), City Prosecutor Reeves.
