Why should we bother to attend these meetings? We are consistently ignored and discounted. Citizens have repeatedly filled the Council meetings to see no response. In fact, the only time I remember hearing a response from Council or Board members was to deny what was being said—no acknowledgment of there even being a problem; no offer for discussion—just indignation and denial. No self-respecting person is going to continue accepting that kind of disrespect. Thanks so much for a Forum of this type. Now maybe we can get some honest DISCUSSION.

Just because you don't see us at meetings doesn't mean we aren't interested or still involved. That's the great benefit of having these meetings recorded and replayed on cable WLHS (Comcast channel 25) and online at wlhsradio.org. We can view them at our convenience from our own homes. I appreciate all those who serve and do attend the meetings at the scheduled times but I can't always do that. Also, I hope you are aware that studies have shown that every person you hear from actually represents 50 others you don't. So please take that into account when you think about all those who HAVE tried attending meetings and other ways to get your attention.
