Hi Owen,

That depends whether this one incident becomes a pattern. One incident
standing alone means the process is working as intended. A pattern of
incidents, should one develop, would mean that the AC is  suppressing
public participation.

Something to consider the next time you vote to abandon a policy
simply because you think it's "bad." That isn't what you were elected
to do.
