County Board Serious About Selling Parks, Libraries, Community Centers, Etc.
Here's the agenda for the County Board Office / Executive Leadership Team agenda for the March 20th joint work session at WETA. The County's Public Information Director, Diana Sun, is lying like a dog when she says that the meeting consisted of "informal strategic discussions". As you can see this was a formal facilitated meeting where the County Board and Executive Leadership Team were tasked with finding ways of disposing of "aging and underutilized County property". Moreover, the teams that were tasked with deciding how to dispose of County property mostly consisted of non-residents. How's that for local democracy aka PLACE? The Planning Commission was represented by two Democratic Party / County Board facilitators, who didn't participate in the team discussions. No doubt about it, the County Board and County Manager are deadly serious about selling off the County's public infrastructure.
