V. Open Forum

Comments: By:
Need to maintain decorum

Speakers list is to provide opinion and drive discussion; not an excuse to vent

 

Vikram
Asked questions more than once

Objections are for new info not to disagree then vote no

 

Rosie
If someone objects, then vote no so everyone can speak their opinion

Good job scrutinizing

Keaton

 

Democracy and people have their minds set

Good job information seeking (regarding the vans and planes of competitions)

 

Bill
Good job with vans

Uncomfortable with funding flight

Stick with rules

Sydney
Need info to make decisions

Have to trust people that when making an objection have more information to introduce that may sway someone

Alex
Abstaining from voting shouldn’t be done unless you have a personal connection to the group where you’d be making a bias judgment

If you don’t know where you are, object to voting and say you don’t understand

Laura
Only abstain from voting when have personal bias

When objecting to vote have a reason why (if your mind’s not made up); then get on the Speakers List and voice concerns

Vikram
Don’t want treasury to feel obligated to fund things

That’s why have the rule

Kenneth
When there’s gray area, it’s our duty to make those judgments Lemoine
