IMPORTANT INFORMATION and CONSIDERATION
BALLOT PROPOSAL #3

Recent polling indicates that voters are unaware of Ballot Proposal #3.  Plus the polling indicated that some people find the Ballot language more confusing than helpful.

For people who are interested to help through emails, letters to the editor, and  other messaging:  here is simple language which literally prompted a 20 point swing in support for Ballot Proposal #3.

    Process to eliminate
    the Agriculture,
    Building and
    Grounds
    Committee...

   
Who knew it was
     coming?


   And... Why?

     The Chairman of the
      Board
told the
     Chairperson of the
      Agriculture, Buildings
      and Grounds
     
the day before the
       meeting time and the

      members at the end of
       the meeting...
The motion went to the Safety and Rules Committee the next day, proceeding to the Nov. 1st meeting of the Board and will come before the  regular meeting of the Board on Nov. 13th. Reason given for the elimination - meetings were cancelled  due to not enough members for a quorum.  Members recollection differed...  that meetings were cancelled due to no items on the agenda! 

The whole process was done by the letter of the law, but very little respect for the members -  to give them time to weigh the pros and cons of this decision made by the Chairman of the Board.
A little aside... the Chairperson is the only woman chairperson of a committee.  What if the shoe was on the other foot and the committee chair was a man?   Would a question be raised?  And then, would a committee be dissolved?
