Raking Muck

 

Davida discusses Geoff’s cartoon fetish; new board members face learning curve on constitution, open meetings and records; Covid and in-person learning; Sunseekers appeal; Covid relief and more.

 

Figure 1Trustee Arthur Ircink, left, interrupts village board meeting to ask everyone to use a photo of themselves in a zoom profile. Cartooning is a form of expression allowed especially in public meetings set aside for public comment. That is why there is a first amendment; so no one silences others with different messages like poor performance by village officials.
