Council Chairman Touma wants to reduce the speaking time of residents at the council meetings from five minutes to three minutes. The chairman said, “I don’t see the big deal. The speakers will just have to talk 40% faster.”
Andy Touma campaigned on encouraging voter involvement and public input and he just made a move to reduce resident participation at council meetings. It almost looks like his campaign platform was a bunch of cynical promises craftily structured to get him elected.
When asked if he was taking the reduction in speaking time at the council meetings personally, Gerald Skrlin, renowned political cartoonist said, “Nah, I’ll just have to talk less and draw more.”
Speakers at the council meetings are having their time cut by 40%. Now, if only the council would cut their collective pay by that same 40% they could save enough money to give Tom DeSantis two more $12,000 pay stipends.

The council has managed to pretty much silence the residents at the council meetings, now if they can just do something to keep Donna Owens from talking.
