As I have reported this past week, the County Commission plans to boot petitioners out of the lobby.

I found out this past Friday, commissioner Barth was taking photos of a petitioner, which is a form of intimidation and harassment, I am assuming to build his case.

UPDATE: I also found out today that Barth is the county commission contact person for the city’s park board. Curious if the Park board had anything to do with this decision to all of a sudden limit (pool) petitioners?

Not sure where all this hostility towards petitioners comes from, but oddly, it almost always comes from elected officials – gee, I wonder why?

I hope to speak at the CC meeting on Tuesday about their silliness and paranoia.

    Just ’cause they’re taking your pictures and ignoring your petitions, doesn’t mean they’re out to getcha, does it?

    But it might.

  2. And to think Barth wanted to be a congressman.

  3. Heard he makes some pretty damn good burgers.

    Did you make to the CC meeting and ask your question?

    Did anyone get the boot out of the lobby?

    I can’t speak for Grudznick, but instead of considering the picture-taking harassment and intimidation, I’ll bet he’d just say “smile!”
