Notes From September 3, 2013 SOS Public Meeting

Here are the notes from the September 3, 2013 meeting:

·     Saturday Market and SOS Strategic PLAN

We spoke about the positive feedback we have been receiving at the Saturday Market Booth; There have been a few comments by some, that they do not believe SOS appreciates all points of view and that is disturbing; While we realize we will not be able to please everyone, if people feel that we do not appreciate their ideas, we have failed; SOS appreciates all points of view and will remain a melting pot of ideas, moving forward with the current majority; We welcome diversity; as for our Strategic Plan, we are continuing to incorporate all of our Committees into our website and shall continue to develop each Committee’s webpage and unique Goal and Mission Statement in line with SOS’ Mission: “A Citizen-Voiced Plan to provide for a secure, stable and sustainable Josephine County.”

·       The Great DEBATE – Matthew Eldridge continues to narrow his focus for this upcoming event and we encourage everyone to attend:
