  1. I sure hope Eastsider will report on the CD 13 Forum held last night. In addition to the news that O’Farrell was a no-show.

    May I suggest that the Editor’s request for people to take notes at public meerings be placed in a more prominent place? In fact, maybe in several different sections of Eastsider?

    • Yes! I totally agree! How are we supposed to make a decision if we did not attend the forum? We can read up but nothing gives insight for our vote as to see a debate. If the forum occurred, it should be recorded for all to see, not just the few who could make it at dinnertime on a school/ work evening.

  2. The coalition of Neighborhood Councils that sponsored the forum took video. Here’s the link to the Youtube playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYgkY-odVohaWkdMhIZVSZUX-bFXQuzza
