Smiley confronts PSJ commissioners on redundancies

Buzzett, who participated by phone during the last meeting, said he didn’t believe Patterson raised the issue about him, but felt a need to respond.

He said he was addressing medical issues in Texas and had an opportunity to participate. If a commissioner cares enough, is responsible enough and has a legitimate reason to miss a meeting, there should be no reason he should not.

“You are bringing up something that doesn’t need to be brought up,” Buzzett said. “I don’t see a problem.”

Magidson said commissioners should be encouraged to participate if they can and the law allows for absence due to cause.

“Their voice should be heard,” Magidson said.

Commissioner Phil McCroan turned to Buzzett and explained he had several citizens question him about Buzzett’s absence from the meeting and that is why the item had been placed on the agenda.
