It seems odd to me that the page was reportedly "hacked" the day after a highly inflammatory remark was made by the head of the CAC. I suspect rather than being "hacked," that the CAC members have pulled the plug while they discuss among themselves the proper use of the FB page that bears the CAC name, and I hope that is the case. It's a good place to share information and a good place to gather comments from the citizenry, but like any social media, it has lots of opportunity for abuse.

Doug is human just like you and me. Puts his pants on just like me. I get mad alll the time and say things. Im sure there is more then beneath eye but this is all new. Mistakes will be made. I think he should say whatever he wants but log out as cac and post as himself. Afterall. He is a CITZEN. Just like you and me. I appreciate his thoughts.
2 new members have been added. Nrw to Portland also. I am enjoying them as much as all the rest. Even when they all disagree. Thats what a debate is. I feel like the fb page was close to a town hall meeting and hope for speedy return. Thanks for all them who volunteer.

I agree that Doug is human and he is certainly entitled to his opinion, but he needs to be more cautious with his words when he is speaking as the CAC and not make blanket statements that leave out the facts. I'm enjoying the 2 new members of the CAC as well. I think they are both a great addition so far. Like I said, I hope they as a committee are just reconsidering their policies for the CAC FB page and will have it back up soon.

I wish they were still active. They could look into the Sunshine violations by the Mayor and his unofficial committee to purchase the old hospital building. The city attorney has been charging for being in on these meetings, so why is it so hush-hush?

I wish they would be active and keep their Facebook page running and do their part to keep the citizens informed , but they seem to come and go on whim--- we never hear what they are working on. If they don't want to hear anything negative, they should at least have a website to keep people informed and how to contact them.

Interesting comments about those hospital negotiations --

CAC has gone through too many members. Too many have questioned the guy who is leading it and from his posts and replies I can see their point

Well, the CAC won't be taken seriously by the citizens until they can get it together and be stable. They seem to come and go a lot. I agree about the postings from the leader . Wish they had a website and would communicate with the people.
