Below are the two email responses from City Clerk Bernie Harris and Communications Manager Amber Strazzo in response to my emails this morning asking what happened and when the video with audio would be available for the public. It obviously is not a high priority for these two who are paid with your dollars.
Patrick Hopkins gave an over two hour presentation on the budget for 2020 and once again the city’s livestream “failed.” The public has a right and a need to know what transpired. Afterall, it is their money! City council members are supposed to be public servants. And where is LNP?
There will be much more tomorrow.
* Tony Dastra, as a private citizen, successfully livestreamed these meetings for over a year. Since the city took over, they have had a problem with one-third of every livestream of a meeting. This is inexplicable and unacceptable. There is no excuse for this level of “incompetence!” Or is this purposeful?
A MEETING WITH NO SOUND!
— ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE! —
This was my text message exchange last evening with Amber Strazzo, Communications Manager for the City of Lancaster. There was an extremely important, over two hour city council committee meeting and there was no sound. This is unacceptable!
