I don't know the relevance of my opinion on this topic but what the heck.

1 = lame
2 = less lame
3 = least lame
4 = cant comment on non-existence so how about no?

Seriously, this wasn't advertised enough, the decision for the meeting IIRC
was made at the tail end of your regular meeting and continued even when
other Council members had already left. I do wish more, if not most, of you
showed for the meeting but I cant hold it against you when it was announced
the way it was (end of meeting and via logs about a meeting you had attended
so why would you read them).

I think voting you guys out would be lame. I like that word regarding this
topic. :)  I personally will vote for each of you again should you choose to
run in the next election. 

Regarding that #!$$#@% about Trustees trying to take over control of
Council, you really don't even want to get me started on my thoughts at that
but expletive expletive expletive should cover that nicely. It is sooo not
what the Trustees were voted in to do, that being to handle many legal and
non-technical matters. If ever there would be a reason for developers to
quit, I would cite that as a prime candidate. Sorry, to my knowledge we
didn't ask for a take over.

Kind regards,
