I hope he invites someone from Community and Economic Development June 8, 2014 at 1:01 PM

The Planning and Building Departments are Very Difficult to work with. As a licensed architect for 40 years, I dread any visit there. My projects are held hostage until I acquiesce to any number of their inane demands. These folks are not competent enough to work in the private sector, so they lay back in their cubicles, waiting to scurry like cockroaches over a set of fresh plans.

Invitation by RSVP only so they can censor dissenting voices. Elitist bourgeois pigs.

By invite only means paying to attend June 8, 2014 at 3:31 PM

Those paying to attend get to schmooze with the "elite" June 8, 2014 at 4:42 PM

and schmoozing in this context means networking, which to the uninitiated means brown-nosing.

We don’t live or work in Concord, but I understand these meetings, and I think they’re effective.
