The Town posted the Work Session and the Council meeting together. Since you likely don’t have 4 hours to spare to watch both, I will start with the Council meeting. The 7 pm meeting starts at 2:05.
Since Public Comment was outstanding, begin there. Craig Stimpert was up first. He was following by Heidi Zimmerman, Marc Tirittili, Karl Sila, and Ron Ulmer.
I could tell you what each said, but all worth hearing for yourself! Ron wasn’t on the mayor’s list of speakers (Town error), after calling Ron “out of order” Koos realized the error and let him speak.
The topic was mostly Connect Transit. Karl Sila brought up the Town’s still illegal Public Comment policy. The purpose of Public Comment is to address elected officials, but it clearly is for people who bother to watch the video too. It proves you are not alone. The speakers last night represent the views of more than just themselves. Be inspired! Watch.
The circus started with Public Comment, the voices of we the people were first. The entire rest of the meeting was the establishment trying to refute them and marginalize Stan Nord and Karyn Smith.
The themes repeated over and over again last night were:
- Government knows better than you
- Believe everything you are told by government
This meeting is going to take multiple stories.
The video should start with Craig Stimpert – 2:06.05
