As of today the Chairman of the board, Mary Bolin has made a change to the county commission meeting agenda by moving "public comments" to the very end of the County Commission meeting.

This means that anyone wishing to speak on any issue not included in the agenda will have to sit and wait until all items are clear off the agenda in order to make their voices heard.   I believe she has made this change because the animal advocates had the audacity to speak up about the animal shelter during "public comments".  To try and shut us up, they put an agenda item regarding the shelter at the end of the meeting.  We complied, sat and waited four hours to get two extra minutes of speaking time.  But still wanting to discourage us, she has made this agenda change so we will not be tempted to come and speak during public comments which was much earlier in the meeting.  Keep in mind that any citizens wishing to make their voice heard on any subject are also being punished by Chairman Mary Bolin-Lewis.   I'm sure she is smiling.

Calls in to Bill Mick,  letters to all commissioners and to Florida Today are in order!!
