If you read the minutes of the meetings in 2019 and early 2020 when the Sand City Art Committee was discussing and deciding to spend a substantial amount of money on a mural festival, there was no talk of “let us see what the community has to say about it.” There was no concern because they really did not care what the community had to say. But now that there are real challenges in the election and a possibility of losing their seats on the Council, suddenly there is an urge to talk to the community and make them feel like they really care with a Q&A session. They did not care then, and if elected, they will not care for another four years.
The irony in all this is that, the only candidate for City Council who ignored Police Officers Association invitation to meet the officers, held a Q&A session because of interest in the community’s opinion. In a few short weeks there is a real choice for Sand City. Vote for Kayhan & Don. Make the community matter.
