Yep, saw the advertisement on Facebook to come one down from 11 a.m.- 9 p.m.

Figured oh "its an open house affair where the public can come and discuss and find out more about what this group is trying to do to improve our political process.

Got there about an hour after started. The group were engaged in a circle giving their criterion on how Bob the new mayor handled the media. I personally think he handled them just fine!!

Did I get anything from this meeting? No. My questions were regarded as inconsequential!!

The attitude was elitism. I personally felt very excluded from this important catalyst for change in our city.

I am for this city to have open accessibility , transparency and accountiblilty.

Welcoming people to learn about this is much needed in our community.. Making a subcultural elite group mmmmm is well boring - not my cup of tea.

Thanks for the invite I hope people didnt show up after you left at 1 - yet advertised until 9 p.m.

I did come away with one positive thing, something I strive to always look for in whatever and wherever I go.

One gentlemen spoke, after he was rudely cut off, about what I thought this meeting was supposed to be all about, "the barriers our current election process has in reaching out to the public in an effort too engage them in the political process and ensure and implement computer technology that will help to make politians accountable and transparent.. This is the site he recommended.. enjoy!
