  1. I attended the first meeting at Caroline Kennedy Library. Council Woman Badalow was well prepared and had various ordinance materials, documentation on issues before the council, including the deficit reduction plan.

    There were only about 10 people in attendance. She went from person to person and asked what their major concerns are and addressed each one. A few building dept issues were discussed an then finally the elephant in the room – closing Eton. thought I might be the only person who thinks we should close when I opened the conversation. However, everyone attending agreed it was necessary and that services have to be combined. It’s not a North or South thing- it’s closing th buildings that logically make sense to close due to cost and use limitations.

    it was a good meeting and I encourage all other citizens to attend one of the scheduled meetings.

  2. I agree Kathy. Roberts Rules or Order – I’m no expert, but I dont’ remember the process where after a vote, you can continue to kick a dead horse. Why the conversations after the vote – it needs to be put back on the next meetings agenda with additional detail or reason for conversation. Stop talking until someone gives in…..

  3. He’s not the one who changed his vote. Lisa did. He can only advise. She’s the one who makes the decision how to vote. Let’s not go all la-la on Lisa just yet. She’s the one who went all wine and roses with Ned and now she’s changed her vote. I’m not likin’ what I’m hearing.

  4. Wow. By that post I’d say you have a personal problem with Janet. Don’t understand but I’m not privvy to your personal dealings. As far as Janet is concerned, you can say what you want but it seems to me she’s now the ONLY council person who is willing to STAND UP IN FRONT OF US and answer our questions face to face. Don’t see anyone else doing that. After what LHC said about Ned in one of her posts and her changing her vote, I’m going to hold my judgement of her to see what goes on in the future. Talk’s cheap, LHC. Changing your vote and giving the mayor what he wants – AGAIN – is just more of the same. Perhaps you had a good reason but perception is everything. It is my perception that you sold out.

  6. J Bad has taken the initiative to make herself readily available to the citizens. I’d say she is kicking butt, getting out there, in public, and answering questions that no other council member will face up to. I’d say after the way she was treated by many of the citizens, as well as other elected officials, she is going the distance. Yay for you, JB. Thanks!

  8. I’m sure we’ll witness alot of bravado at the meeting. Then the meeting will end and we will all return to the same old city and the same old crap. None of our Council members ever do anything but talk, talk, bitch, bitch, bitch!
