Why the definitions?

Someone asked why we were posting the definitions of words.

Well….. Because the City is using some words but not really understanding the meaning of those words.  We thought we would help out by sharing the actual definitions of some of the words the City seems most confused about.

Some of the misused words are CompromiseDealBargainCooperationand Merit.

During the Negotiation process these were the words the City was using often but were using, at least in our opinion, completely wrong. For example… Being told  what you are going to get is not a Compromise, that is called an Ultimatum.

They say Knowledge is Power. And now you know.
