With fewer supervisor meetings, we’ll have a dumbed-down democracy

Being a rural North County resident, for quite a long time I frequently listened to the Board of Supervisors meetings broadcast on KCBX. That great exposure to issues and ideas and their resolve came to an end for reasons which I forget (economic?), but that was very disappointing and I miss the broadcast.

The current mandate by the board to reduce to two meetings a month leaves me cold, figuring that much necessary information shall not be readily conveyed to the public. It shall lead to reduced public input on the many issues that need public discussion.

I urge the board to reconsider and return to weekly meetings.

The current decision is a path to a dumbed-down democracy.
