Editor:
This is written in response to the letter from K. Scydloski, published in the Feb. 3-9 issue of the Beach Beacon.

It is unfortunate that the writer feels this way about the current commission in Madeira Beach. He/she has probably not had the opportunity I have had to get to know them and to see how much time and effort these dedicated people give the city of Madeira Beach. A commissioner’s salary of $400 a month ($600 for the mayor) does not even begin to compensate for the work they do and the time they spend. I challenge K. Scydloski to find any special interests or groups that these members of the commission are seeking to advance, or to find any personal benefit they are getting from their service.

I do not agree with K. Scydloski’s interpretation of the resignations that occurred in approximately August of last year or of his/her interpretation of the way commission meetings are conducted. However, I honor his/her right to express an opinion. I do wish, however, that we were seeing more well reasoned and rational opinions, and not just disparaging statements and insulting remarks.

There is one thing I agree with K. Scydloski on, and that is that everyone in Madeira Beach should see the commission meetings.

Come to the meetings and express your opinions. If you can’t come in person, you can watch the meetings on Channel 15. The times are given regularly on the stations, posted around town or you can call City Hall. Reach your own conclusions regarding the representation you are receiving, and don’t let yourself be swayed by negative platitudes and vague generalities.
