committee appointment process usurped
Original post made by code blue, Atherton: other, on May 4, 2010
This--after the committee's own meeting minutes from their February meeting (available in full on the town's web-site) state that this would be done.
As has been stated elsewhere on this forum Ms. Lewis chose only pro development contributers to her own campaign for office--no one who did not vote for her was selected.
The complaints about process, by the meeting attendees went completely ignored--on the grounds that this concern was not on the agenda and therefore could not be addressed!
When you add all of this to the way selections were made for the Finance Committee and the General Plan Committee last week --again by Lewis and Carlson's choice of developer Jeff Wise for both Commission openings, while ignoring Mr Wise' conflict of interest issues as a recipient of the litigated refunds, you have to start questioning--are the committees really meant to provide resident participation, or are they being loaded into becoming Lobbies for the only special interest that we have here in town?
I believe that all the selections need to be re-evaluated and re-done from scratch, using fair process and that Ms. Lewis should get a grip on the power tripping--she has far too many conflicted interests of her own to ruling by decree. I also believe that Mr. Carlson has already lost the next election by tagging along with Ms Lewis' behavior.
........ and by the way-- Didi is back.
