I went to GDPUD’s Aug. 21 special meeting to see for myself what was really happening in these meetings, and I was shocked at the rude and offensive behavior. A board member, Norm Krizl, yelled at Kathy Otermat, “We don’t care about your job!”
I think that opened the door to others who interrupted Kathy when she tried to talk.
The whole time, President Ray Griffths said nothing.
Kathy asked Ray to do something about the disruption when she tried to speak, and Ray accused her of trying to tell him what to do.
Isn’t that what a Board President is suppose to do? Maintain order? Kick out people if they can’t wait their turn to speak?
Finally the attorney yelled at the crowd to let the person at the podium speak.
I think it is time clean up this Board to throw out the incumbents. After four years, the incumbents Norm Krizl and Bonnie Neeley should know by now how to bring civility back to the Board meetings. It was very obvious that these incumbents had no intention of doing that. Go to flushthewaste.com to either listen to the meeting audio or read the transcript.
