Here’s The Scoop #4…Commission Meeting 9/12/08… CIC’S UN-INVITING FORUM

CIC MEETING IN A DIFFERENT VENUE?…INDOCTRINATION?………

YOU TOO CAN PARTICIPATE IN A CIC MONTHLY MEETING….AT JARVIS HALL….(will there be applications at the door?)….

CIC Chair Cristie Furth came to the podium at Public comments…and reiterated the CIC …”OLD-FASHIONED” Town Hall Meeting …Sunday Sept. 21,2008… Jarvis Hall 7 pm…

She followed up on her Vice Chair Maureen McIntee’s article printed in their pal MacMillan’s BTSTimes 9/12/08 edition…just above the CIC purchased ad…CIC Board member #10 Publisher MacMillan… loves to get that CIC ad revenue..

It is set-up … based on …..re-enacting ….. a CIC monthly meeting…with the Commissioners leaving the room to allow one Commissioner talk to the audience…in accordance with Sunshine Law……YIKES!…

As previously posted…This incorrect forum was announced last month on the CIC (still dormant) online site…. and in the recent “invitation” to Comm. Dodd…where sadly it was also discovered that the Board member who received the most CIC votes… John Thompson ….was purposely excluded from any input or knowledge pertaining to this event…by the CIC Executive Board…further ensuring the wrong style being used for a publicized Town Hall event …especially by the CIC…at least the CIC of old…..informal…and relaxed….

The elected officials were given rules…regulations…and “pointers”…along with an alloted time-slot…expected to “cool their heels” outside of the hall for an hour and a half!… due to Comm Dodd not attending…or it would be a 2 hour outside gig….PLEASE!…

The event will not be televised…so I guess they dropped the ball here also….although it might be a blessing in disguise…

BCbythesea…has heard ….there is no “going back” on their decision…made again by “preferred ” members of the Board….who do not question the Chairs….TOO BAD!….

More to come………
