VRE Summit and who went
Only four supervisors showed up to the VRE Summit last night, and one of them was on the panel. Supervisors Hap Connors, Benjamin Pitts, Gary Skinner and Jerry Logan were at the meeting.
Is that a sign that VRE might pass 4-3?
I wouldn’t take it that far, but one resident criticized the other three supervisors for not showing up, saying this was an opportunity for them to learn more about the service and get some factual details. Just keep in mind, the entire event was recorded and will be aired on the local government channels. I believe about 30 to 35 questions were asked and there were more than 75 on the list. I know that probably more than half of the questions came from e-mails residents sent me, but some key questions did go unanswered. I’ll try to get answers to them in the coming weeks.
At the very end of the meeting, one man just stood up and said out loud "Just Join!" and I am not even sure he was a VRE supporter.
