Comment: MCC member looking for insights and suggestions
EDITOR’S NOTE: MCC member Deborah Lardie has posted a comment on the story of Rich Gordon’s disparagement of the Council. She’s looking for insights and suggestions, and I thought this would be a good time to continue the discussion.
As a newly elected member of the MCC, I thought I would throw in my rather belated two cents here-
When I ran for a seat on the Council it was with the, rather naïve as it turns out, thought of filling a need for participants. As a relative newcomer to the coast I had little history and few preconceived notions about the Council- I saw what it was intended to be. What I have been experiencing, as Vince aptly described, is at times political theater, and a lack of support from the local press, government and some community members (I am still pondering the roach motel concept). Some of the most vocal critics, including this thread, cannot seem to express themselves without personally attacking the sanity, competence or integrity of council members. It is all a bit scary- government shouldn’t be this way.
