PSJRA workshop offers opportunities

“That’s why we feel left out of the loop,” Nelson said.

Alsobrook and Magidson repeatedly said the PSJRA board meetings are public, advertised in advance by statute.

“Any input from the public I think the board would be very receptive,” Alsobrook said, noting that PSJRA board meetings are lightly attended. “If the public gets involved the board will listen.”

Debra Barnes said she thought the board should expand its numbers and suggested PSJRA board members go into the community to fully grasp feelings of resistance reflected by the three commissioners voting to dissolve the board.

 Board chair Boyd Pickett said he had done just that.

“I have been out in the community and I haven’t found anybody (who doesn’t approve of what we are doing) except the three commissioners and they won’t even return my calls,” Pickett said.

Further, several PSJRA board members said of the three commissioners, two, Commissioners Phil McCroan and William Thursbay had never attended a meeting.
