Adjourning the meeting without public input was a slap in the face

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I was appalled after attending the Belknap County Convention meeting yesterday. The chairman, Ms. Worsman, asked for adjourning the meeting without any public input.

This is yet another attempt to abuse her power as chairman. Moving the meetings an hour away to Concord and then prohibiting public input is absurd. I cannot believe your caucus believes that having constituents drive an hour each way for a meeting held at noontime would be conducive for open and transparent government.

Shame on you, Ms. Worsman, for making it impossible for hard working-class people to attend these meetings. It is a slap in our face not to allow us to ask questions after driving an hour each way to attend these meetings.

For those of you who missed the 3-4-14 meeting please click the below link to watch — the 3/19-14 meeting will be downloaded soon.
