"Thank you for your willingness to help get the message out to the citizens.

The Board of Commissioners meeting is scheduled to start at 9:00 AM, Tuesday, Feb 9th, and we do have a number of items on the agenda. The normal format is having all agenda items presented and action taken on all of them with “public comment” after last agenda item is finished.  After the general public comments, the last item is Commissioner Reports, where each Commissioner may answer questions that were raised in public comments and also may make general comments on any topic they choose.
I have requested that all specific public comments on the National Motto agenda item be taken immediately after the Resolution is read, but before deliberation and the resulting vote.  I have not heard if this has been decided on yet. This would be a “Chair” decision.
Normally, a draft agenda is posted on Thursday or Friday.
Seating may be an issue. We have an overflow room, #214, next to the #219 Hearing Room.  Room 214  has audio but no video streamed.
I encourage any and all to be in attendance. Let people know that if they can’t be there or they will be there but do not intend on speaking, please send or bring in written comments with written request for their comments  to be read into the record. Make sure staff or I have copies sent or hand delivered to me before the meeting starts.
This is also a perfect opportunity to involve younger citizens in this important issue we are dealing with. The long term ramifications of this issue are too huge to quantify, especially for the young.
I am making a suggestion that any of you that may be involved in activities such as any age youth  Sunday school classes, youth groups, bible study groups of any age, get them involved before Tuesday’s meeting. There is a Sunday coming up that could reap many, many letters short or long, written in pencil, crayons, pen , computer or in emails . I would love to see literally boxes of letters come in with a written request  on each letter to be read into the record. What a life long example this could be for young and old.
We have before us one of those special, rare opportunities to make a long lasting, positive difference in our community. If you do not participate, I guarantee you will regret missing this opportunity for the rest of your life!!
Thanks so much,
