Sanctuary. What I'd like to address today though is when I came up to speak last Wednesday, I feel that I was really interrupted 00:12:51
during my 3 minute comment time by Commissioner saying our 3 minutes are three minutes. And again today is not to create chaos 00:12:58
because I think there's enough chaos going on amongst the board and if anything I can be a beacon to stop that. 00:13:05
That the public comment I think people are just. 00:13:14
I get never. Sorry, I don't like public speaking. Maybe we don't understand it. Why is it at the end of the meeting? Why can't we 00:13:18
speak on it before? So maybe an education piece. Maybe we need to have a town hall again so we understand how that works and that 00:13:26
public comment is actually used for. I feel that the three minutes is my time to speak to you and not be interrupted. So I think 00:13:33
it's quietly hypocritical that I came up last Wednesday to speak on an urgent topic. 00:13:41
And to address that Commissioner saying. 00:13:49
And I was really interrupted by her. I feel it's hypocritical. 00:13:52

I just. I want us to all come together, man. I want us to be able to work as a community like I am with you and that the entire 00:14:02
board works for the greater good of the community. Thank you for your time. 00:14:08
Mr. Chair, I'd like to respond to that. Sure. Commissioner Singh, that was recorded. So I'll be looking at that to see if your 00:14:17
complaint is valid. But at the same time, I was the person that encouraged us to adopt that on Monday's agenda. I don't see it on 00:14:23
Monday's agenda, so hopefully. 00:14:29
We'll continue to see some effort from that group to push that forward. 00:14:36
All right. Any other public comment? 00:14:43
All right. At this time, we'll go ahead and close. Public comment time is 909 and we stand adjourned. Thank you, everybody. Have a 00:14:46
