    Hopefully all concerned Citizens are being invited be they Democrats, Republicans, or Independents.

    .This is a opportunity to unity Conservatives, Liberals, and Progressives to discuss, analyze, and finally bring parity to stand up together when the Commissioners, Dysfunctional Staff, and Special Self Interests Dominance act not in the Public Interest or Public Good.
