What PUBLIC is being protected?

Original post made by Hal on Oct 9, 2010

Regional (resident) counsel(s) have discovered the intention of CCC-BOS to hold an unannounced meeting of their Public Protection Committee prior to the regularly scheduled meeting on October 18, 2010. The reported purpose of the special meeting is to review actions of communities and neighborhoods in CCC District III to determine if such 'harassment" has any impact of the choice of appointees for the east county cemetery district seat(s). Reportedly, the firing of P-2B committee members in Alamo, the reconstitution of committee membership, and the appointment process is also going to be reviewed for "harassment" activities by communities and neighborhoods.

If such is the intentions of the supervisors, your readers might wish to ask "What PUBLIC is the CCC Public Protection Committee protecting?" It seems that the intention is only to protect the power of the supervisors to make unilateral decisions without consideration of the will and interests of communities and neighborhoods.

Your journalism is needed,

Let's be sure your readers understand the purpose of regional (resident) counsel commentary I posted as a courtesy for your readers' review. The questions for your readers' consideration are:

1. What is the role of CCC-BOS' Public Protection Committee? How does it protect the public? What is its scope of consideration?

2. How should CCC-BOS' appointment process reflect the will and interests of the people served by various boards, commissions, committees, councils and taskforces?

3. Why have supervisors and their staff claimed harassment when neighborhood, business district and community groups' representative request public release of information and public comment on issues?

4. What is CCC-BOS' requirement for sufficient public notice of meetings and how should such meetings, and their agendas, be announced to insure that the public is informed?

Your readers should receive your journalism on these important questions.

Hal, if you have some way of knowing that the PPC is planning to hold an "unannounced" meeting then you should share your source with us.

I don't believe it.
