  • 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.
  • Hahaha. Honestly do you think any of these dogmatic “leaders” will read or listen?

  • They should take the advice of their
    advisory board on this and vote No.—it’s par for the
    Coarse that we have a Covid spike right when this item is on the agenda…they don’t want citizens to show up…we know the masks don’t work and now there’s reports of sudden death syndrome from people who have received Covid shots around the planet. Vote anyone out of office come election time that wants to destroy single family neighborhoods.
