Re: Pierce County Council member Connie Ladenburg’s proposal to move council meetings to a later start time of 5 p.m., allowing for more citizen participation (TNT, 3-26).
My former colleague on the University Place City Council, County Council member Stan Flemming, must be truly stressed about turning 60 at the end of this month. Always a clear thinker with an elephant’s memory, Flemming was quoted as saying that “we were lucky to get one person to show up” – referring to a 6 p.m. start time for University Place council meetings.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise, because our meetings during Flemming’s terms started at 7 p.m.
Happy birthday, Stan. It happens to the best of us!
