E-exchanges have offered the following commentary on “is five people enough?”

Karen, in Round Hill wrote: A MAC is the perfect solution for Alamo because it would be commitment by the Board of Supervisors to have five Alamoans provide voice for all Alamo residents. With a formal relationship with our supervisor and the board, the MAC members would be our dedicated opportunity to really be heard.

Deborah, in Miranda neighborhoods wrote: A MAC would be just another five people ignored like the current county advisory committees in Alamo. Unless a neighbor absolutely had to pursued an county government issue through the MAC, those five people would be without an audience.

Jason, in Hemme neighborhoods wrote: Five people cannot do the jobs we need done. Alamo must have more residents committed to community efforts such as infrastructure enhancement, transportation and traffic, economic development, and protection of our neighborhoods’ character. Even the AIA with it larger board and committees is being overwhelmed by the requirements of more than 16,000 residents.
