BC- Of course this was BEFORE the majority on the dais changed ….and Commissioner Silverstone made his new Mission  Statement…”But again, with freedom of speech you can’t really control that and that’s unfortunate because it’s public, it becomes public knowledge and public information and that’s where it gets dangerous and that’s all I have.”…(previously posted….scoops & LBTS agenda/meetings category…2/3/09 Commission round table freedom of speech)….

EXCERPT………

” Let’s talk about the real issue here,  the real issues not the transfer of information. It goes back to freedom of information, transparency, it’s what is done with that information after the person gets it AH unfortunately some people have gotten information and they spin it a different way for, I believe the Volunteer Fire Department works specifically with the Town so everything should be open. I don’t have problems with that at all, but I do have a problem when the information put out to the public and that’s a dangerous thing because once the public reads something they’re gonna remember the last thing they read. They haven’t heard the other side of the story. Whatever they’re gonna be left with a certain impression. I think you said it best it’s a reflected up there and that’s unfortunate. But we have a case in Town where somebody’s using a private blog as a public blog and then you can always change what you consider freedom of the press and freedom of speech but then when your caught up in it you say it’s just my opinion, but you’re putting it out there like a fact and then when you’re using data from that you got from the Volunteer Fire Department , whatever entity you use and you use that maliciously that’s a problem and I think that’s wrong. But again, with freedom of speech you can’t really control that and that’s unfortunate because it’s public, it becomes public knowledge and public information and that’s where it gets dangerous and that’s all I have.”

HMMM….VFD-Bylaws…ignored…LBTS Mission Statement….. ignored………I see a pattern here……….ignore….ignore…ignorance…….”But again, with ignorance you can’t really control that and that’s unfortunate because it’s ignorance, it becomes public knowledge and public ignorance and that’s where it gets dangerous and that’s all I have.”…..
