Salem governance is THE indisputable proof that organizations are subject to the Dunning-Kruger Effect as much as individuals are.

Thanks for the report Brian. I'm sorry I couldn't make it. I believe the Mayor intended for her Task Force to be a rubber stamp for her plan to put the new police station at the Civic Center. It hasn't worked out that way thanks largely to City Watch and Salem Community Vision and Salem Weekly and other fiscal watchdogs in the community. So now they are just floundering and wasting time and money. It certainly points out the need for better leadership in Salem if we are going to make any progress on pressing needs in our city. If the Big One hits in the next few years and our first responders are buried in City Hall (oh, and the Library falls down too), we'll know who to blame.

When is the next task force meeting?
April?

Ellen, today I got this info from Geoff James:

NEXT POLICE MEETING IS WEDNESDAY APRIL 1 AT
6.00 TO 8.00 AT BROADWAY COMMONS GRANT ROOM
