Re: [MPD-5D] Walk-Thru Follow-Up Meeting/Personal Attacks
- To the 5D Listserv Coordinator:I think Ms. Henderson's 11/16/08 email should have gone directly to the Councilmember or his Constituency Director, instead of using this listserv which delivers so many emails throughout the day. She does not speak for all of us as Mr. Corvelay stated.Also, is there a way that personal grudges and matters can be filtered, or even addressed by someone higher up (such as yourself) so we do not have to deal with this?Thanks in Advance,P. Manson

you're right..we all should be on the same page regarding community
concerns. unfortunately, you're reading a different book than
you are the FORMER commissioner. ..please stop speaking for the
community when you don't represent us. in fact it's illegal for a
former public officers to continue to perform those duties.
its ironic and hypocritical that you criticize the efforts of a duly
elected representative but the real anc5b10 commissioner (india
henderson) is never heard from on this listserve. those in glass
houses shouldn't throw stones.
also you mentioned the fundraiser for webb elementary that was held at
a business in anc5b10. did you attend? the elected councilmember did
to show his support for the community's elementary school...how can
you criticize him for that?!
please stop. it's embarrassing.
