« Photos of 2014 Oregon Country Fair -- yes, yes, yes! | Main | Preserving Howard Hall got strong support at Salem City Council hearing »

July 13, 2014


Council knows that the way to deal with the "public" is not to start this "public" hearing until late at night. Then just hear from the "proponents" i.e. Salem Health CEO etc., then go into recess to discuss with attorney the Mayor's conflict of interest with the huge photos of her that Salem Health published in the paper. Then on resuming to announce it's getting late and pass a motion to continue the "public" hearing for two weeks. That way the opposition to the demolition may not show up again, after being subjected to waiting 4 hours in council chambers (not even allowed to stand!) until some of them, including the blind, have to go home. Them tell them they will not get to speak. What an outrageous strategy to defeat the "public".
