Explanations why Hickory City Council hasn't done this years ago - Priceless
Video is below with Audio synch coming in at the 48 second mark.
The Following is a video presentation of the Hickory City Council meeting of December 4, 2012. As many of you know Harry Hipps asked that this to be done as part of his platform in running for Hickory City Council in 2009. Hickory Inc. has himmed and hawwed about hundreds of thousands of dollars in expense... Lack of Lighting... Lack of Sound, etc. As you will see I have done it for $200.
It was stated in the Hickory Daily Record that people have asked that these meetings be carried live on Charter Channel 3. The Citizens for Equity in Government have zero to do with that request. We recognize the multiple thousands of dollars in expense that would be incurred to make that happen -- Charter Channel 3 yes, Live, why??? We believe that Hickory Inc. officials made that statement to put a huge price tag on the cost to justify either putting it off or not doing it at all.
I will put the Hickory Hound Newsletter out tomorrow.
Let me leave you with one last thought. The City has been asked to do this multiple times. I told you over the last year that I was going to take this in my own hands. I am one of the few people I know that can get down to the Brass Tacks of what things cost and what is possible and what is impossible. People need to quit being so damned gullible.
For those with more Bone matter in their skulls than Brains, I want you to listen up real close. When Ole Thom Shell tells you he is going to do something, he is going to do it. Now there might be obstacles that get in the way of that and these impediments may keep things from being done in an expeditious fashion, but my word is good as gold. This is why I have been laying low the last few weeks. There might be a lack of understanding that certain people with some money are going to stop important initiatives, but we'll wear them out. We take as much pleasure in that as anything in life itself.
If it is important, it is God's will that it be done!
