Just what a progressive city doesn’t need, a dress code for Manteca council members

How’s that for irony.

On Tuesday evening, the same elected leaders who appointed a millennium advisory committee to help Manteca keep up with changing social and economic trends a week earlier asked city staff to help them develop a dress code for Manteca city council.

Next week, they may suggest the formation of a citizens’ committee to advise them on a dozen famous dead statutes that they would like to place around Manteca in order to create harmony, peace and understanding. in the public square.

The idea of ​​the dress code was put forward by the mayor of Manteca, Ben Cantu. He may have wanted the 1980s when the city council gave themselves bright red blazers with the seal of the city of Manteca pre-castrated where the church still had the bell tower and the cross intact. The likes of Mayor Trena Kelly as well as council members Bill Perry and Jack Snyder have taken them to city town events where they were often mistaken for red carpet realtors.

Since Manteca City Council has never had a dress code before, we can only speculate about the fashion faux pas that triggered the need to implement it now when we have a pandemic, an economy that took a punch because of COVID-19, the In fact, the homeless established a beachhead in downtown and at a time when the red light is still considered a Manteca birthright.

Not being sexist, it is also strange that the council decided that a dress code was essential for the future of the city when the councils included only one woman as well as only one of the five to have sat on the council at Mantecas. The 102-year-old story is sidelined by the need for surgery.

I’m not saying that men have no fashion sense, although an attorney can present me as Exhibit A. It is, however, somewhat unusual for four men to decide that the city should have a dress code in the era of the millennials without at least having the only one A woman of the council gives its opinion before investing time in this business.

Debby Moorhead, by choice, prefers to be called a counselor rather than a counselor.

But if the council is really trying to agree with the basic rules of the millennials, shouldn’t it first clean up their own language?

Asking the city clerk to call the councilor before each member’s name before proceeding to a recorded vote seems a bit archaic and counter-millennial.

I’m getting lost, but these are things that a millennial-oriented council might think about instead of a dress code.

But since the council raised it, let’s see where it can go.

Maybe the board will decide when and how it’s appropriate for Manteca’s elected leaders to wear white after Labor Day. They might want to consider when a board member can wear shorts at a meeting.

This trend was started by former city councilor Mike Morowit who cleverly noted that the 100 degree days in Manteca are not suitable for suits or a shirt and tie for that matter. Even though Morowit wore shorts as well-groomed as his beard more than once, he was also sometimes one of the smartest board members in recent years.

Their advice could require formal business attire, casual or causal attire in California, and anything in between.

To make sure Manteca makes the right impression, they could ban cowboy boots like the United States Senate tried to do once when former Colorado senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell, duly elected, wore them in rooms of the Senate.

What if the Council’s dress code prohibits flip-flops? What message would this send to a brass technician creating one of those start-ups that Manteca has coveted since before the invention of the smartphone, especially if the millennium behind him wears flip-flops and a hoodie himself? Will the proposed dress code send a subliminal message to the next Mark Zuckerberg that he will not fit in with the Mantecas culture dictated by the city council dress code?

Then there is the question of whether indigenous ethnic formal attire is preferred by a current or future member of the council. Will it also be prohibited?

Although the devil is in the details, it is a waste of time to devote energy to a dress code unless it is applied and there are consequences of not following it.

With that in mind, who will monitor the board to find out how they are dressed when they enter the August rooms of the Moorhead town hall complex, which clearly has a higher level of architectural taste in the past described as a 1970s era Taco Bell on steroids?

This task could fall to the police chief who is still acting after the city put police chief Jodie Estarziau on the ice eight months ago with full pay.

In the spirit of the late Joan Rivers, Manteca could boast of having the real fashion police.

The acting chief of police, Mike Aguilar, can also find himself armed with a rule, especially if the council follows the dress codes of the era of the 1970s which, routinely in commercial and school environments, wonder if men’s hair should be allowed to touch a shirt collar.

After all, if the way another board member dresses is the business of the rest of the board, the length of their hair must certainly come into play. They might eventually want to address personal hygiene habits while they are determined to add to a multitude of book regulations that are apparently only enforced when complaints are received or the city wants to play with another offense.

Once a board member is found to be in violation of the official dress code of the five Manteca executives, is it illegal to participate in meetings that effectively deprive those who elected them?

Much of the discussion on the implementation of a dress code dates back to the time when President Richard Nixon, for a brief period, assigned soldiers to White House security as if they were guards of palaces for the European monarchy.

Why do we need a certain look to send a message to the world that board members are essentially board members?

They should reflect the people they represent. Most people, including council members, dress appropriately for the occasion since it’s California and if they don’t, no one starts stoning them.

If there was something very risky, like a board member attending a meeting without a shirt or pajamas, as was the fashion barely a few years ago when some people ventured in public, a code dress might make sense.

That said, the fact that Cantu asked for a dress code for the council that the three other people present last week saw fit not to disagree with the concept, you have to wonder what was worn by the current council or his predecessors who urged the council to do a very non-millennial thing like following a dress code.

Who knows, it could be what they wear behind closed doors at executive meetings or when they attend Zoom meetings regarding the pandemic emergency that Governor Newson allows cities to keep the public from seeing.

If so, curious minds want to know which board members have zoomed in on a dress with thatch on their faces?
