Editorial: Public should have more access – not less
The Board of Supervisors recently agreed to let county administrator Michael Thompson develop a request form for all to use in order to be added to the agenda and address the Board during their meetings.
Thompson has not presented the final product for approval. We also do not yet know who will have the final say on whether someone is granted time on the meeting agendas to address the Board.
But it is troubling that supervisors and those who work for the county seem to be isolating themselves from the very citizens they represent and work for.
