Resident Says we can disagree but do so with respect! Article draws the ire of residents with strong memories.

To all COLA LO Members,

This past week in the review resident Lynn Hennagin the spouse of former city councilor Roger Hennagin (who lost his council seat in the 2010 election) submitted an article in the LO Review.   In the article which can be found below the author suggests we aren't investing in the communal interest and suggests residents who disagree with local government decisions should do so with respect.

This brought out the ire of several residents who remember that while on Council and in the Lame Duck session last year, then Councilor Hennagin was not very respectful to opposing views per online comments.   It provides some insight into the ongoing frustration with residents who believe they are ignored in the public process and feel they are being told to shut up and sit down by local officials and special interests.

The article and online comments can be found here: We can disagree
Please notify all members, contacts, and friends of this important discussion between residents.
