In keeping with our policy, the RWENA Listserv monitors will take all necessary steps to remove and prevent future posts regarding the Convention Center issue. If neighbors wish to discuss this issue privately or in any other forum, they are welcome to do so, but not on the RWENA Listserv. The ROWENA BOD has not taken a position in the Convention Center discussions and debate of such topics is an inappropriate use of the RWENA Listserv.Mike tells me that not only have discussions of other municipal issues been allowed, but the day after this ban notice went out, someone posted a messsage to the RWENA listserv encouraging members to "boycott" the petition requesting a referendum on the convention center proposal with the point "We need a new convention center".
I made a couple of attempts to contact RWENA leaders, including emailing their president. My attempts have gone unanswered so far. RWENA members are welcome to comment at Enclave on this issue. Maybe we can crowdsource what's going on at RWENA since I can't seem to get info from the leadership.
