How about being constructive and sharing your observations

Pittsboro, NC - On January 11, jkabreu wrote that "I attended the January 3 Board of Commissioners' morning meeting and subsequently read the "notes from that session" that were posted on the Chatham County Online bulletin board service. I am concerned about the biased nature of the referenced material. It does provide some facts from the meeting, but there are also some misrepresentations."

I'm glad you attended the meeting. Anyone who attends public meetings is to be commended. Now, why don't you take the next step, and share your observations on the meetings with other people, by posting summaries here on the Chatham Chatlist?

I've been attending school board meetings for the past three years, posting my summaries on the bulletin board that whole time and here on the Chatlist for the past year or so. I believe more information makes for better government. It would be wonderful if a dozen people attended every commissioners' meeting and every school board meeting and posted their observations. Citizens would be better informed. In the meantime, if only one person posts info on school board meetings, and only one or two people post info on commissioners' meetings, I still think that's a good thing for the county.
