    I am commenting on the discourse concerning the Vanguard Fundraiser with Council support.  First, let me state that I believe you are providing a service by presenting another opinion on events, news, etc occurring in our little town of Davis.  Your dedication to attending Council, Planning Commission and various other city meetings as well as bringing about meetings designed to focus on “housing” is essential, and frankly needed.    Unfortunately, when a journalist (not unlike a politician) takes money from or requests money from those they write about, there will no doubt be a firestorm.  So in the words of Big Daddy Jesse Unruh “If you can’t eat their food, drink their booze, “bleep”, take their money and then vote against them, you have no business being up here.”  

    I am confident that you will be able to take money from those of us in Davis, that care enough about our town, to support you and that you will still write against those who have sent you money when needed.

    I am forwarding a check today! Thank you.

    To be honest, I don’t understand the criticism on the City Council. I don’t understand the logic of why City Council members cannot freely talk to people they like and participate in meetings they like. It is not like they are avoiding the official meetings. And the event is FREE. The $25 is only donation. A person can attend and not pay a dime. So anyone is free to go and just record the meeting.

    Brown Act came from 1953. There was no internet, no recording, no email, no twitter. Why can’t we just let people meet and talk about things they way a person normally would? What is the good of not letting the city council talk to each other? If an issue is worth 100 hours of discussion among the city council member, what do we want to force the city council to only talk about it at allotted official meetings, if they are WILLING to just talk about it in their own time.

    If you want transparency, the meeting is transparent, it is announced, it is free. Everyone is just volunteering to do that. What is the problem?
