Word on the street is that there will be an anti-fluoride protest at tonight’s MCSD meeting. I’m not sure exactly what that means. Are people going to show up and simply express their opposition to fluoride to the board? Or will there be a protest with placards and a little street theater? We’ll find out shortly.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. with a closed session, during which the board will negotiate a contract with Manager Tom Marking. There will be some time before the board goes behind closed doors for the public to comment on the matter. Then at 7 p.m. the board is scheduled to convene in open session. That’s when the real fun begins. I would advise those attending to grab a cookie immediately upon entering the Hewitt Room because they probably won’t last long, at least based on my experience. There’s nothing more depressing then going to the back of the room during the meeting and discovering an empty paper plate where the cookies once were.
If anything earth shattering happens at the meeting, I’ll try to post something on this blog when I get home. I’ll have to keep it extremely short, being that the meeting will probably drag on late into the night and I need my beauty sleep.
