"they are also willing to accommodate the commissioner representing the district in which the meeting will be held with some time to make a brief presentation if they would like."... what the hell kind of statement is that? Howard and Shoemaker now have the power to grant permission to the other Commissioners, as long as they are brief??

What if they all want to speak at all of the meetings? Will they be denied?

They should schedule one of the meeting at the Manchester Valley HS that functions at 60 % capacity because of Shoemakers half assed leadership...maybe he could explain a few things about his consistent bad call addiction...use of eminent domain etc., etc... Will these meetings be video recorded?
