« Fight to preserve Howard Hall is about more than a building | Main | A justified snarl at City of Salem's August "Dog Days" event »

Thanks for speaking the truth Brian! You make so many great points. Like you I left the meeting feeling sad and sick to my stomach. I trust my instincts and my instincts told me that something is very wrong with the decision-making at the council. The love was palpable between the city staff and hospital staff. On the other hand, the annoyance City council felt towards Howard Hall supporters was easy to notice. So infuriating!


I want to comment on Hpward Hall but I keep getting timed out. My older Kindle doesn't have a whole lot of word processing ability. Can you help

Gail, why don't you email me your comment at [email protected] ? Then I can share your comment on this blog post.

I think the city council needs to replaced with folks who care about and serve the community. This decision proves that the city council knows there will be no negative consequences for them. With no consequences they are embolden to do whatever they want. When is the next election?
