Challengetheworld - Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment this morning.
Please allow me a chance to respectfully disagree.
Couple of things:
1) It IS part of his job and responsibility to stop and talk with local news outlets. We ask questions on behalf of the people who live and vote in this county. When he blows us off - he blows everyone else off too.
2) HE said he was too busy ironing his shirt - not us. We're just reporting what he said.
3) We also asked if he could talk with us a few minutes before this afternoon's agenda briefing at 4:00 p.m. at the Government Center. He said he was even too busy for that!
4) We will be at the meeting this afternoon - but it is not proper for us to speak during a public comment period. That's for citizens to speak.
As a member of the media who's job it is to hold public officials accountable, blowing us off for whatever reason and not making time to explain to his constituents what is going on -- is UNACCEPTABLE.
