Oh my lovies what a crazy week! Nothing really big happened so I haven’t blogged the mundane stuff (work, illness, schedule juggling). However, tomorrow is a big night. If you remember our Board of Education meeting in regards to distribution of religious materials, well the voting is tomorrow evening. We have gathered up a nice group to attend with us this time, of varying backgrounds who wish to join us in solidarity as well as even speak in favor of the policy. I have spoken with the Communications committee at the BoE and I will be taking my laptop and will be able to live tweet the event. Please follow my Twitter account or follow the hashtag #avlgov to watch the public commentary portion of the meeting as well as the outcome of the vote. During the live tweeting I will not be able to respond to tweets but if you use the hashtag, you can freely discuss amongst yourselves what is happening. Depending on my ability to plug the laptop in the while will dictate how long I can tweet for. I simply won’t do it from my phone during public commentary, my thumbs were killing me last time. If I cannot plug in, I will tweet the public commentary as long as my battery will hold out. I will tweet from my phone the outcome of the vote. I won’t leave anyone hanging!
The meeting begins at 6:30 pm and it will probably be around 7ish that we get to public commentary.
I have already worked up my short comment on what I want to say. I cannot allow myself to be intimidated again and I am already prepared for a long, long public commentary session. I am looking forward to this. It’s going to be heavy and full of anger but I really cannot wait to make Buncombe County history. It won’t be the end of the issue, but it will be a good beginning.
