Do you expect him to do it for free? Of all the things that the BOE spends excessive amounts of money on, I believe that price is fair. After all it is allowing you and others to view the meetings. Plus the above mentioned individual has a business to run as well. It takes time and money to set up, video, take down, edit and produce a video for tv use.

It is absolutely fair. Anyone who thinks this isn't fair has never created and operated a business. Income taxes for self-employed are double what an employee makes. Self-employed income taxes are taxed at a higer rate than Mitt Romney's capital gains tax rate.
Also, yesterday, it was announced that George W. Bush will be the keynote speaker for the first night of the conference 'Cayman Alternative Investment Summit' to be held in the Cayman Islands on November 02, 2012. Just 4 days before the election. You know the Cayman Islands, where Mitt Romney has hidden some of his wealth. It will be well attended as many wealthy individuals gained their wealth through the $1,000,000,000.00
Department of Defense Iraq war contracts. This trillion dollars were all borrowed and your grandchildren will never see light due to our deficits.

The BOE best not pay for this service, does the county, or the city of Douglas, pay for this service? After all Johnny has sponsors that pay him to air these meeting!

And do you know why the self employed pay double taxes? Because they cheat on taxes every friggin chance they get. That's a fact, Jack! Every which way possible & then some.

At least they pay taxes.what about the ones that just take from the system and pay zero. It is past time for the middle income people to call bs on every freebie the goverent gives. It is time for us to take control of this Country . There will be a fat that only the strong survive.

Welfare? Last I heard if a person performs a service or sells something, then that is called earning a living. He has given a great deal of free to this community.

Onto BOE website, that way anyone with a PC can watch the meetings and at no extra cost to the BOE.

i have tried to put city meetings, chamber and BOE meetings on the internet for 7 years and they just don't want to. I would call and they would tell me they got a new computer guy and were X months from doing it. So in X months i would call and say its been X Months how is it going and i get another time frame. I just gave up a couple years ago and moved on.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
