Board members should respond

October 10, 2012
The Leader Herald

On Sept. 20, I attended and spoke at the town of Johnstown's board meeting. During the public comments segment, I talked about how I felt three of the board members' lack of response at the prior month's meeting was uncalled for. When those in charge of a meeting ask "all those in favor?" people are supposed to respond with a "yay," "nay" or "let's discuss [the issue] first."

Well, three of the board members refused to answer. I informed them that is a form of insubordination. No response from any board member was given at that time.

However, on the way out, as I was walking down the hall, Councilman Daryl Baldwin approached me and informed me that they do not have to respond.

I don't understand how that can be so. I also informed him it doesn't look good to people in the room that you purposely refused to answer because you do not like the results of the election.

I thought the town residents should know what's going on and if this has happened to anyone else, let the rest of us know.

Town residents should go to the meetings. Bring a friend, you don't have to speak; just make yourself aware of what is going on.
