Well, another Clarification session gone awry.
What was obviously needed was a venue with no time limitations. If a good crowd of active participants was expected, even touted, how could anyone think they could get in all the anticipated questions, answers, Clarifications, responses - and also "Dialogue?" in two hours? And with maybe two responses, or more, to a question and three (or more) Clarifications, AND With mandatory opening and closing statements from the large panel? (Kind of over kill on the pro Elk Grove side.)
Wow... Some job. Answers cut to 30 seconds, please! Gee, I wonder who was responsible for that request to the moderator? It's hard to read a question, let alone formulate and present a cogent answer in 30 seconds, even for practiced speakers. That was a short circuit that cut the effectiveness of this meeting to the quick.
It should have been stated at the front we had to evacuate at 8:30, some of us would have jumped in and got those cards back in a hot flash, knowing if you were tardy you'd be out of luck.
So 1/2 the questions did not make the table. Oh well, eh?
We'll look for the master study, and a view of the MOU.

Sadly, the "Summit" was a carefully-staged forum for the Mayor's entrenched position that the SOI will go forward. Once more, as in the "listening sessions" any so-called discussion was beating a dead horse. Elk Grove has a definite agenda, not yet disclosed, and any talk of transparency is a myth. The summit made it very clear which shell the pea is under, so thanks, Connie. Thanks, too, to Councilman Davis for showing backbone in supporting dropping the Cosumnes River flood plain from the SOI. He appears to be the only Elk Grove official who listened.
