I was hoping to place this comment on my earlier post, but for some reason I am unable to post comments.
Long Reach Village Board member and friend of this blog Josh Friedman posted about my post regarding Pearl Atkinson-Stewart's stepping out of the OB CA Board seat 4 years ago, and Andy Stack's running. Below is that post:
Pearl Atkinson-Stewart has decided to not seek re-election to her position on the CA Board, and instead, run for election to the Owen Brown Village Board. Read about it here.
Pearl's replacement will be Andy Stack, a 30-year veteran of the OB village board, as well as a brief time as the OB CA Board rep.
I know Andy Stack to be fair-minded, EXTREMELY analytical, and less of a skeptic than one would expect from such extensive involvement in Columbia affairs. I do NOT know how he feels about the pertinent issues of the day, such as downtown Columbia development. I would call upon the OB Community Association to hold a candidates' forum so that residents of OB and all of Columbia can learn about CA's newest board member.
Josh, or anyone, please help me out. Was this situation in OB also a last-minute situation? If it was, that was unknown to me at the time, and if I'd have known about it, I'd have spoken out about it. The post clearly mentions that I'd have appreciated OB holding a meeting to acquaint themselves with Andy, despite his lengthy community experience.
Not sure if I'm missing something. I don't do a good job at recognizing and addressing passive-aggressive behavior.
