I think that the Fairfax council is more than ready- and ready to set an example of how democracy works. I have testified in front of every council in Marin- I have found that the Fairfax council is by far the most receptive. If every council would allow themselves to be filmed, and if the people would watch what goes on, I think they would be shocked at how the people who come in to speak are often disrespected and dismissed. Thanks to the Fairfax council for once again being leaders in the Marin community.
