Bold Statement of the Week

This week, the Bold Statement of the Week Award goes to West Chester Planning Commission Member Matthew Adams.

His statement?

"These meetings really need to be a little more efficient."

He said this at Tuesday evening's planning commission meeting.

OK - this statement might not seem bold to those of you who have never felt the ache of spirit that comes from sitting through a meandering, three hour municipal meeting. I have. And I agree. West Chester's planning commission meetings could be a bit shorter and more focused.

At the same time, I wouldn't want West Chester planning commission meetings, or any of the municipal meetings I cover, to be too short and focused. If they were, it would mean the board or commission that is holding the meeting has done most of its negotiating in the dark, out of the public's eye.
