An unusual exchange between commissioners took place at the Monday, July 11, BOC meeting after citizen comments. After not keeping time on one citizen, Comm. Trammell tried to reign in other citizens and then tried to cut off Comm. Pennamon as he was speaking. This must watch video says it all:
TWG sincerely hopes Comm. Luke is being honest about his wanting to listen to citizens. We encourage him, and all the BOC members, to continue to be open to listening to their comments, complaints, and suggestions and give enough time to each person as they did on Monday night.
Comm. Pennamon is absolutely correct, the BOC can’t play favorites. It was a highlight of the meeting when Comm. Pennamon stood up to Chairman Trammell for trying to cut him off while he was making that point. Trammell has done his best at every meeting to cut off discussion from other members of the BOC.
