From the Town HallNovember 12th, 2008 by Steven Gardner
Well, that didn’t go well, did it. My laptop wouldn’t let me connect to the Internet, so I couldn’t live blog. Better there than at something really critical.
The two meetings were very well attended, about 100 total when you don’t include port staff and reporters. Larry Stokes said he wants a vote on it. Most of those who commented on that favored it, though one audience member said it is the commissioners’ job to make that decision.
From my perspective the crowd was a pretty even mix of those in favor and those opposed, as well as a few undecideds. There were some good questions from all three camps and a couple of arguments. Go to the link above. There’s a short video for a little flavor.
