One meeting does not an expert make

By From page A5 | October 08, 2012

EDITOR: I am responding to a letter written to the Mountain Democrat by Setwart Wilson on Sept. 24. It seems a bit strange to me that someone who has not been active in the CSD suddenly becomes an expert, after attending only one meeting, on what is wrong with the community and the members of the community, who have been involved for years.

Mr. Wilson states what he observed at the meeting of Sept. 19 was troubling and disturbing. With no knowledge of what has gone on in this district in the past, he is ready to conclude that it is the fault of a small group of community members. He states that this small group was there to do nothing but disrupt the meeting. Mr. Wilson must be very intelligent to be able to analyze and evaluate all the information needed to come to this conclusion. It must be that we are a small group and this must inhibit our ability to make rational decisions.

Speaking about time limits: We have always had them for open forum. The free speech issue you would not understand if you have not attended previous meetings or do not believe in the 1st Amendment

We are not the reason that the agenda was not completed. We did not put the agenda together. That is the responsibility of the general manager.

You state that you are a longtime resident, so I would say to you, Mr. Wilson, become more involved in your community, then you will understant the problems of the district and the community of Cameron Park and will be more able to come to reasonable and logical conclusions and to make better decisions.
