To the editor:
Thank you David Burress for five practical suggestions on governing (Public Forum, Nov. 12).
Additionally, as a voter/citizen/taxpayer, the following are also important when items of growth appear on the agendas of our decision-making bodies, and that is exactly how the chamber, each Chamber of Commerce board member, and each city, county or planning commissioner is invested with:
¢ the real estate/development community
¢ the new industrial park projects
¢ existing industrial parks
¢ housing projects
¢ retail projects
And that this information is disclosed for each agenda item - under oath, please.
How are the chamber, chamber board members, county, city or planning commissioners or city staff invested in Deciphera?
All of the above should be a matter of public record for reasons of transparency. After all, the decisions do have an impact on voters/citizens/taxpayers. For all sitting board members, elected officials and Chamber of Commerce officials who disagree, I suggest resignation.
