Coral Gables Impasse Hearing: Openness for a Few
August 25, 2010 Leave a comment
For those who might have taken up the recommendations from the Coral Gables PAC and the Residents for Government Reform to attend the Coral Gables City Commission Impasse Meeting, you will notice that unless you were able to squeeze into the meeting room you would not have heard a word. About 90 percent of the audience chairs were taken up by t-shirted members of the International Teamsters Local and the balanced seemed to be a few residents with interest in the Impasse Meeting, onlookers and the press.
A TV set outside of the room was blank and Coral Gable TV did not carry the event. It is sad that the City Commissioners are reluctant to let a bit of light into city events, let along promote resident participation and government openness. At least that is the message one gets from the recent event.
