What a Week: Can't talk about it

Original post made on Mar 26, 2022

Some of the most interesting items at a public meeting revolve around the things that aren't talked about. Or, more like, things the elected officials can't (or at least shouldn't) discuss. Like at Pleasanton City Council last week...

Oh the irony…

People are allowed to talk off topic at a city council meeting for the sake of transparency. Well Jeremy, at least they are allowed to voice their views - off topic or not.

Yet, if people leave comments about a particular issue that San Ramon / Danville doesn’t seem fit, the post has to go through a moderator before it sees the light of day.

In fact, contrasting viewpoints between two people here at the local rag may get you the “Sniping” award. Funny how that doesn’t work in a public setting, eh Jeremy?

Not everyone has their posts moderated before they're posted. I think it's the person posting, not what you're posting.

Free speech doesn't mean you can say anything you want. At a public meeting or online.

Hi Jennifer,

People you don’t agree with apparently tend to get under your skin. Instead of sniping at them, I suggest you try to debate the issue and not make it personal.

By the way, is part two of your argument coming out soon or is that it?
