Del Norte County Supervisors Exploring How to Regulate Public Discourse at Meetings
On November 15, Diana Bosetti published an article in the Del Norte Triplicate titled "Counties looking at how to handle outbursts".
The article specifically cites that Del Norte County Board of Supervisors Chair Chris Howard attended a meeting with the California State Association of Counties (CSAC). Howard stated that the purpose of these meetings was to discuss:
"There’s been a lot of unrest in the state and a lot of political division...the CSAC body is trying to slowly walk into the discussion of this and how it may or may not influence legislation in the future that addresses some of these concerns"
In essence, Supervisor Howard used local tax dollars to attend a meeting that explored how to legislate new laws to curtail the access and rights of the citizenry that question and challenge the actions of local government in a public forum.

A guide, on finding a man who has lost his way, brings him back to the right path—he does not mock and jeer at him and then take himself off. You also must show the unlearned man the truth, and you will see that he will follow. But so long as you do not show it to him, you should not mock, but rather feel your own incapacity.
Do not rely on following the degree of understanding that you have discovered, but simply think, “This is not enough”.
