PSJRA workshop offers opportunities

“A lot of people don’t understand what is going on, period,” said resident Nathan Peters, Jr.

There is also equal, if not more, frustration in sectors of the community over a lack of understanding about the goal of the majority’s actions to dissolve the board.

“What is the problem?” said resident Gina Vicari. “Why are we trying to get rid of these un-paid people and replace them with the same five (city) commissioners? They have other issues on their plate.”

The bones of contention, as framed by residents Thursday night, could be placed under several large umbrellas.

The makeup of the board

There is a sense, said resident Tim Nelson, that the PSJRA board is “insular” and comprised of some of the same people who serve on other boards.

He questioned the extent to which the board would be open to new members and new ideas from others in the community.
