Shirley Lasseter and Mike Beaudreau stated yesterday that their appointees to the Citizens Review Committee commented that "there is a stalemate" and "some people are not open-minded"!
Realistically, take a look at what has happened here. On Dec. 6 at the public meeting, several committee members stated that they wanted to be done by Christmas, whether a recommendation was ready for the Board or not. The deadline for the recommendation is Feb. 8. These same members also said that "there is no way this committee can come to consensus on what to recommend to the Board, so why waste our time?"
These members ultimately pulled off the mother of all surprises when they preplanned a resolution to dissolve the committee and presented it at the Dec. 20 committee meeting! The committee wasn't even close to being able to make a recommendation to the board. The committee was not evenly divided on the issue of commercialization. There was no discussion of any recommendation. When the RFP was issued, these folks decided to "get back" at the board by attempting to dissolve the committee and force the board to complete environmental and economic studies immediately.
These actions will come back to haunt these sneaky, underhanded members. Come, see for yourself as I have ... be a part of the public listening to what ACTUALLY happens at the APCRC meetings.
