On the other hand, such "combativeness" flushes out comments like below. I'm not sure where to start on commenting about the below literary excellence. I'll let you be the judge. I will just assume that Mr. Malloy disagrees with me. There are a couple of things, tho. Mr. Malloy seems to think I just sit at the computer and criticize others. He seem to suggest that I get off my butt and do something free for the city. Let me see......there was the time I was on the Park Board. Then some time was spent on Environmental Learning Center, DART Station Art Design Committee, Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee, Economic Development Advisory Committee, and a term as a Rowlett City Councilman. I also helped put together the Rowlett Regatta last year, and I almost single-handedly brought the Rowlett Housing Finance Corporation to it's current formation. The Board of Directors have just been selected. I must confess, I was paid $100/ month while on City Council. The rest was free. I will be happy to publish Mr. Malloy's city service resume here on this blog.
Once again, I did not write that "the fix is in." I asked my readers if they thought the "fix was in." As far as "slamming volunteers," that's casting a large net. I have a lot of friends that are volunteers. ___________________.
By Mike Malloy (firstname.lastname@example.org)Wow! That wasn't an opinion, that was a redundant thesis! Make a point and move along for God's sake! The term "less is more" is applicable here. All I remember is 7 members, 2 alternates, only 3 had something to say (over and over). There is a protocol to establish a quarom that was met. These are volunteers. Fire him? No, how about you step up and serve in a thankless, payless, volunteer position and become a vote? Doesn't sound like one more yes would have made a difference anyway. Majority opinion wins, minority opinion loses. This is not a new process. Slamming volunteers is unacceptable, and unwarranted accusations of fix when simply speculating should be criminal. I it might be!
