So former Oakley Mayor Kevin Romick says:

"Video conferencing apps all have the same inherent issue, 'Are we live?' The unfortunate incident involving the Oakley school board dramatically illustrated this issue. It's obviously important to know when you're live. Fortunately in the many video meetings I've been involved in, there hasn't been such an O-s--- moment."


You don't have to worry about Oh sh.... moments if you are a decent member of your community who respects the people who put you into office. But then this is how our government at all levels has chosen to operate today, or so it seems to me. Personal agendas are primary! Openly ridicule the voters, but don't let them hear you doing it! I guess the good folks of Oakley should be happy he's the "former mayor."
