Delegate's Meetings 2012
Why have our delegates meetings degraded into hateful, personal attack acrimony? This is so humiliating and unnecessary.
When a motion is made or a budget reported on, why do we need to hear the history of the world as an introduction to a business topic?
The procedure should be:
Motion, second, discussion.
A person against the motion should say in 50 words or less, I am against the motion because……….. Then
The President or an officer should say: I am for the motion because …… and succinctly explain the research and rational that has gone into publishing the motion.
An active issue should allow several speakers but when the speakers are just repeating what has already been said, it is time to vote.
After the vote, we should accept it and move on.
I think we have all been driven crazy by the negative, untrue ads that have been a part of this campaign season. We should not emulate this practice, we should remember that we are a community and we will have different opinions but we should be on the same side of the ultimate goal. The good of Century Village is the important goal here.
The one political ad that I have enjoyed this year is one of Bob Nelson’s telling about flying up into space and seeing the whole earth as a whole entity, not political, racial, religious or other divisive blocks.
We are better than what we have become. Just watch Ken Graff’s pictures and interviews of our centenarians. You will see some of the good. Century Village is a wonderful place, let’s let the good be seen by Frank Cerebino and all the world.
