Shortest recording of a meeting I have ever recorded of the Mt Pleasant Board. Catch President Mark Gleason stomp on a comment of a citizen who talked about the election problems last week. I was truly surprised at Mark’s attempt at intimidating people who were merely concerned that if future elections were to need voter ID the amount of time would only make lines longer. I thought it was a valid point. A more efficient system is obviously needed but Gleason appears to think he can just end the negative comments by commanding them NOW. Listen to this, it’s amazing. Catch me comment on the dumping of the Technology Committee. Finally, listen to the board approve the 2015 budget with NO discussion.
The citizen’s comment comes at the 1:18 mark, and Gleason speaks at the 2:06 mark.
