  • A moderator will call on you when it is your turn to speak. Please mute the sound on your computer/device if you are watching the meeting online. State your name clearly for the record.
  • they are recognizing religious holidays now? They didn’t seem to care about religious exemptions when it came to the c19 clot shot.

    • I doubt they did it out of the goodness of their hearts. Someone probably challenged the legality of scheduling the meeting then.

  • So they’ve changed “single family zoning” to “exclusionary zoning” to make it sound discriminatory. “Control the language and you control the mind.”

  • BOZO Poe is emulating California , Portland chaos , ect. It deters a lot of people focusing on his previous catastrophic financial descisions for the sheeples of Gainesville that keep electing people like him and Fat Harvey. Pigs at the trough that cannot get enough of our money and freedom. Biomess still a good 2 billlion dollar idea anyone?

  • I wonder if they will still be wearing their obedience masks even after Biden said the pandemic is over and NOBODY is wearing masks anymore. I guess they all follow the lead of gutless dweeb Poe, which is just pathetic.

  • Are they going to put up Christmas decorations this year in the intersections and streets since we’re observing Yom Kippur? I want Christmas lights, not holiday lights!
    Put it on the agenda Poe!
