The Meeting Was Disrupted

Dear Source:
I am amazed, the czm board works on the public behalf, at the meeting last night its was asked why the developer had asked for a delay. the delay is the developers right, but what about the czm work? as a citizen of st croix my interest is in what the czm has been doing for 30 days, i wondered what proposals they came up with and what restrictions they wanted to impose on the developer.
an article here in the source says several people asked why it was postponed but that's just not accurate, two people disrupted the meeting hall with snide comments from the back of the room thruout the process and then when the chair person announced that the czm meeting was closed they made an even louder disruption witch cause 2 senate security men to ensure the safety of all. the persons doing this disrupting are entitled to there opinions as to the development but they are out of line to disrupt the czm board meeting, they had there say at the public meeting and should know that the czm board and the developer have conducted them selves in a proper manor. I would like to commend the chairperson for doing a wonderful job in the face of adversity. to the same people who object to every single proposal on st croix, would simply ask why you dont step up and contribute with out playing the bully, change will come because sooner or later someone will take the idea of every foot of fredriksted as being historical to court and then you will loose your right to imput you opinion into what people do with there property that they pay taxes on.
