My challenge for all 59 admins and 8 moderators:

Are you able to create and foster an environment where people have a civil discussion, especially hot topics that affect the community?

Can we be respectful of each other and our unique culture?

Can we contribute knowledge and information so that we are a stronger community?

Can we use these groups to mobilize Pomonans to make our city a better place?
