oh Laurie Lee, I am truly sorry that you cannot take helpful advice.  Your " best" is simply understandable. Good luck to you. NEXT!

I do the best I can to make all residents aware of City Hall and real estate corruption. I had no idea it was this bad and it is overwhelming to report.It is not simple and it is never ending. It is a full time job that I do freely with honesty and total personal sacrifice. I can't look the other way when I can do something about it. The first tactic is to make the whistle blower look incomprehensible. Quite the crowd participating in that. Next.

Laurie Lee,

You may have some good points about rezoning, but they get lost in your barrage of almost incomprehensible posts. As an activist, you must know the three pillars of getting support;

1) keep it simple! Most people will not read after the 4th line, use bullet points.

2) keep it focused! Take one issue at a time, more than that, people will get confused.

3) keep it cordial! You will attract more support if refrain from personal attacks.

Best,

Caitlin Hills

Voila! After my email to the editor- at least this thread has gone to the first page but the power house Comprehensive Plan corruption is still on the 2nd, regardless of my 6/1 addition. It is all so exhausting. Posting is crucial.

I posted information on the first reading Zoning ordinance with the thread from my 6/1 post. It's gotten pushed to the 2nd page with older posts taking precedence (5/29, 5/30?). It should have definitely went first order for today's post, but it did not. Hopefully this goes to the first order and those interested can go to that post. If it doesn't, there must be an "intentional problem" .
