Concerns about the council sent to me,
Kathy you ask us to call or email the council with any questions we might have on how they are going to vote. What makes you think they are going to tell the truth? Do you personally feel you got all the information you wanted before you had to vote on the Headlee override?
Do you think the council was truthful with the residents about what they plan cut? I have been coming to the blog for about a year over that period of time you have laid much of the blame for what has happened in the city on the administration. Don’t you think the council is equally responsible for what has happened?
Myself I think the council was less the truthful in the weeks leading up to the vote on the Headlee override. I believe they misled the residents and were less than fourth coming with us. I would like you to touch on this if you would. Just look at what they said or did not say about the Eton center. Please talk about this I think it is important.
Yes I ask everyone to watch or attend council meetings. For two years I’ve asked you to call or email council members with your concerns. I believe when you call, most of them you will give a truthful answer to question you will ask them. I would have like to have some more information before going to vote. That was the information given to the council from the administration. I think the council members were as fourth coming with information as they could be. I think they couldn’t individually start saying at council meetings what they planed to cut. That is why they should have had the meetings once a week and get an idea of where each of them was looking to cut.
I think the council is somewhat responsible for some of what has happened over the past two years. In no way do I think they are equal in that responsibility. I can point to several occasions when the council asked for information and it was never given. How many times are things brought before the council at the last-minute hurry, hurry we have to do it today. If you watched council meetings going back to the spring there were council members trying to talk about the deficit budget. There were those on the council that wanted to start on this long ago.
As for the Eton center listening at the town hall meeting on the south end and council meetings the council made it very clear in my eyes that they are going to close the Eton center.
