The Encinitas Decider

Three hours before last night's meeting, the Mayor sent this out to several constituents who had asked why there would not  be TV coverage of the council meeting. The Mayor also cc'd the rest of the council. That is his all caps.


PLEASE KNOW THAT THE PURPOSE OF TONIGHT’S SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING IS INTENTIONALLY LIMITED IN SCOPE.  THIS IS BECAUSE IT IS MY HOPE TO APPOINT A COUNCIL SUB-COMMITTEE TO PURSUE A SPECIFIC PURPOSE AND RETURN TO THE FULL COUNCIL WITH A RECOMMENDATION AT OUR NEXT REGULARLY SCHEDULED COUNCIL MEETING OR SOONER IF POSSIBLE.

THE PROPOSED SUBCOMMITTEE PURPOSE IS:

TO DETERMINE A PROPER PATH FORWARD TO FILL THE RECENTLY VACATED COUNCIL POSITION DUE TO THE UNFORTUNATE AND HEARTBREAKING LOSS OF COUNCIL MEMBER MAGGIE HOULIHAN

IN A WAY THAT CONSIDERS ALL OF THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS AND/OR OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO THE COUNCIL, THE TIME AND COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH EACH, ALONG WITH A RECOMMENDATION TO THE COUNCIL AS TO HOW T0 PROCEED

No worries. We got the footage from last night's meeting. There were many interesting cross plots. The video, including Maggie's endorsement will be up tonight. If you want the full raw footage, contact us.

Oh, and the published scope of the agenda was a bit different than what the Mayor decided it would be, 3 hours before the meeting, with consultation with at least one council person.

The published scope was to "discuss" and give "direction to fill vacant seat on City Council." Hum, what happened?

  1. Mayor Bond is lacking in email etiquette, not only is he repeating himself but he is shouting. And, why is he dictating the outcome of the meeting by emailing all, isn't that a Brown Act violation? Why are we wasting time and money on something that should be so simple. Give the position to the runner up.

  2. Grandpa Simpson needs to take his meds before he e-mails.
