Virtual Meeting Highlights
There were 34+ participants in the meeting, including commissioners and staff. The League Observer believed only commissioners and staff spoke as there was no formal time for public comment. Everyone was respectful, allowed to speak and express diverse opinions, etc. The Commission was dealing with multiple complex issues.
