Tina and Al you are both correct. I recently read where the County Planning Commission applicants were given 4 days to apply. Of course all the current Planning Commissioners knew when to apply, but the public was given a very short time frame. Another problem with transparency at the Civic Center with our Board of Supes. Does The Board of Supes even care that they are under a microscope?

Mr. Dugan, surely you realize there are only so many hours in a day and, by extension, so many hours to conduct Board Meetings. Consequently, not EVERY issue can be addressed at EVERY Board Meeting. Patience, dear friend, surely there will a time for supervisors to address the concerns of each and every member of the community.

Ignoring the 2001 grand Jury report for 12 years, until the 2013 Marin Grand Jury report again brings you to task is not timely are reasonable. They should eliminate this now with a simple consent motion.

Mr. Dugan, a great man once wrote: "Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." I encourage you to find YOUR inner nature; with all due respect, a simple consent motion is a reckless way to go about eliminating anything. Indeed, should they eliminate something you enjoy with a simple consent motion, I dare reckon you would cry foul. To wit, please be patient, and have faith that your elected representatives shall serve you well, all in due time.

The word is hubris....it clearly defines the actions of the superviors on this issue. A 12 year delay in responding to a Grand Jury critcal report on their slush does not warrant patience, and the second Grand Jury report affirms that in the past the supervisors just hoped people would forget. People will not forget this time. I will post a weekly count on each of these sites for each meeting this slush fund is not addressed and properly resolved.
