Liberty Road has received notification of an agenda item on the Tuesday, December 6th, 2022, Whatcom County Council Agenda. The agenda item, if accepted by a majority of the Council, will likely be placed on the January 2023 agenda for final consideration.

If you value your civil right to address the persons elected to represent you and your local issues, please contact the Whatcom County Council to tell them your wishes. The Whatcom County Council are tasked to 'serve the people' of Whatcom County; they are our paid-for, employees to represent the needs of the entire community. How can/will they serve you if they restrict your access to share your concerns and needs?


frazeyCarol Frazey and other members of the County Council want to seriously reduce and limit face to face Voter comment to the County Council by shortening individual speaker time by 33% from an already brief 3 minutes to 2 minutes, capping total comments to 30 minutes, and banning any topics that are not on the meeting agenda. 

 

Suppression of Public Comments = More of the Same

Please consider:

Emailing and/or calling the county council. 

If possible, send your email BEFORE tuesday, so that the council members will have time to read your email and consider public input before they discuss this topic at the County Council meetings. The county council will be in meetings starting at 9 AM on Tuesday morning.
