    Since when is the City of Carmel’s Committee Chairs getting bought and
    paid for by paid biased lobbyist? The Carmel Finance Committee meeting
    was recklessly ran last night by it’s lame duck chair, Luci Snyder. The
    chair was firm at the beginning of the meeting about “only facts and no
    opinions and NO public comment” and then proceeded to let a PAID biased
    LOBBYIST of a Political Action Committee (Advance America, Eric Miller,
    non-resident of Carmel) present himself falsely as
    a legal authority and use the verbatim phase “IN MY OPINION” during his
    19 minute tirade 7 times! A Point of Order and Objection was called
    and the chair proceeded to scream at and threaten the Carmel resident
    that called it. Then the Chair proceeded to say that she would use HIS
    guidance along with the City attorney’s to help her rewrite the
    ordinance. After that, she killed it from going to full Council even
    though the motion was brought up two times. I am embarrassed for my
    City. I can not wait till our Committee meetings are run by pragmatic
    adults that can not be bought and paid for by outside biased lobbyists.

    Snyder said members of the public were only invited to speak if they had
    new information about the proposal that wasn’t previously revealed. In
    the end, speakers shared their opinions for more than hour, leading to
    one hostile exchange when a member of the audience loudly interrupted a
    speaker only to be harshly reprimanded. He was a paid lobbyist and used the exact VERBIAGE “In my opinion” 7 times and was allowed to continue speaking by the reckless Chair…that meeting was an embarrassment to the City of Carmel.
