Commissioner Comments..Comm. Silverstone….1/28/09 continuation meeting…

CS- ” There’s two issues I’d like to go over today. One is freedom of speech and how important for us to realize that controls a democracy, does not work without freedom of speech. Freedom of speech has to be based on facts, has to be based on information that’s, that can be backed up. The problem I’m seeing in town through many different areas is that opinions are being used to support facts, that aren’t there , aren’t  factual and somehow opinions become facts and there’s a big issue out there in town. I am totally for freedom of speech. I’m for opinions. I’m for debate. I’m for a means to a conclusion to find the answer and trying to resolve the issues at hand here. UM, consensus building ,I mentioned this before, something we should look into. So I’m gonna try and promote it as a way or method to accomplish that. UM, get both sides of the issues in front of us, give em a fair playground, each come up with UM,UM method to work out these issues. UM,UM I implore people out there that are either blogging or controlling the papers or any form of press out there that opinions are opinions but if you can’t have, if you have your own opinion but you can’t have your own facts. Unfortunately it’s become a little goofy around here. It’s caused a lot of problems.”

BC-Freedom of speech…defined…

‘liberty to speak and otherwise express oneself and one’s opinions. Like freedom of the press (see press, freedom of the), which pertains to the publication of speech, freedom of speech itself has been absolute in no time or place. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution bars the federal government from “abridging the freedom of speech”; since the 1920s the amendment’s protections have been extended against state, as well as against federal, action.’

Reiterating this writer’s public comments made on 1/27/09…”it’s a one way street when you’re a politician…” and Commissioner Silverstone…do some backup  research on your comments, the “winging it” up there…doesn’t fly…pun intended…

CS-“The other issue I want to discuss is Commissioner Dodds UM, problems. We can’t run this town, we can’t be a strong town and our job is to to, to facilitate the, the Town Manager position to direct her to run the town if one of us has a problem that is to the extent of Commissioner Dodd’s issue. That’s not, not the benefit of our town here. I would suggest highly Commissioner Dodd to, to get a workshop going here so we can discuss these issues. If you don’t do it, I will, because we can’t  we’re not gonna go forward. The issues you mention are severe and if you can’t do your job well then, we have to discuss that, we have to work it out. So I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get that cleared up. I don’t have those issues. I don’t have those problems, but that’s me, UM. But I think anybody up, anybody up here has those type of Aah, those items that need to be discussed and worked over it’s , there’s no other choice but to sit down and work them out. I DON”T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT, I want to go forward with that. And that’s all I have.”

BC- YIKES!…HUH?….Commissioner Dodd repeatedly called for getting together…and finally had the round table on 1/22/09…(previous post…scoops & LBTS agenda/meetings category)….Commissioner Silverstone “nastily” said he would “try it once”…along with his BFF Vice Mayor McIntee who called it a “Kumbaya thing”…so this off the cuff remark…falls flat!…

No problems up there for this Commissioner…….no surprise to many out here…”the bloggers, those controlling the  papers and other forms of press”…… Commissioner Silverstone has a daily visit in Town Hall, along with being attached  at the “hip” of the Vice Mayor/Manager…kinda like UM, don’t ask…don’t tell…don’t rock the boat…on the dais …in the VFD…the “Broom Boy” motto…UM, slogan…”loyalty” above facts…don’t ya know!

ROUND TABLE MEETING…. 5 P.M. …TUESDAY… 2/3/09…JARVIS HALL…CALLED FOR BY COMMISSIONER DODD….OPEN TO THE PUBLIC…TELEVISED/ONLINE…

more to come
