  1. Obviously, some Commissioners have become sheep instead of leaders. Scared, instead of being responsible. Why can’t they do like everyone else does and wear a mask?? Do masks work or not?? Looks like they’ve become lazy and would rather just meet in their pajamas at home….like lazy & addled Bill Fennoy. Next thing, they’ll all be laying down, just like Fennoy.

  2. Judge Wright conducts her drug court classes in Commission Chambers each Thursday, and has for months. Everyone is masked and only a certain amount of people are allowed inside at once, I think 26. There is plexiglas up where commissioners sit, it has been installed for months. City Employees could continue to participate via zoom if there are too many in the room. The public that shows up for an issue can be allowed to speak to commission from another room via zoom. This could have been easily done already. It makes you wonder why some do not want to meet in person again.
