Best Public Forum I have seen

I was very pleased with the meeting tonight. Many logical arguments were made but everyone stayed respectful of the delegation and each other. There was a wide array of topics and competing ideology but good speakers and mutual respect balanced with passion. Now we need to continue the communication. I look forward to talking to these folks one on one.
