Public comments are part of the process. Setting a limit to 5 speakers with 3 minutes of time seems reasonable. Emailing or calling in to speak should be easy. Informing the board and district of talking points is problematic. Take the good comments with the bad. Some districts have clean up speakers. The will refute a persons talking point at the next board meeting. That speaker will have ties to the district and look to discredit the previous speaker. PR and branding are gold for school districts. Dissenting opinion is to be squashed.Actually, the issue of placing restrictions on public comments in and of itself was proper and correct. But it was something they should already have been familiar with. That's what strikes me about this, even more so having seen this longer video. Their conversation make it sound like they're brand-new to the job. If they had been on a year or more, then their lack of deportment on Zoom coupled with being unsure of their public participation policy is even more troubling.
