I think it's clear now that NotSoNice simply doesn't get it.

Agree Brazil. Sounds like a personal issue with Mr Harvey and he's using anything he says or does to rip him apart. And yes, I've been to plenty council meetings. This while issue is being blown way out of proportion.

I've certainly had my disagreements with Mr. Harvey over policy and will certainly have them in the future but I can't find anything in his actions or in his explanatory letter that are out of line. He certainly would have the right as a councilperson or as a citizen to inquire or be concerned about a certain issue and its possible effect.

NotsoNice- There is a City Council meeting Monday night at 7:30. Please attend and you can ask me whatever you would like about this.

I did read the letter, you obviously didn't read my post. I'm saying that he used his position in Government to comment on something that he has no business commenting on. I know his letter said he supports the First Amendment, blah, blah, blah. He also said in his letter that he was NOT an ATTORNEY. If any of you have actually attended a City Council meeting to hear this guy speak, than you would also know that there is an Attorney present to address issues like this. He did NOT have a right to address it and like I've said, he used his seat on Council to express his position. His letter is simply an attempt to fix his mistake because he knows if he speaks about it at Council, there won't be many people there to hear it. He can say whatever he wants in this letter to make himself sound better but the bottom line is, he cannot take back what he originally said.

Excellent, well-thought-out letter! NotsoNice obviously didn't read it because his/her point was addressed in the letter. I guess if nothing else, this whole blown-out-of-proportion issue has given some people a lesson in Civics and the Constitution.

Why should a community concert series be a "government program" anyway? If it can't fly on it's own with money from NWSB, maybe it's jumped the shark and needs to sunset or find some new blood to run it. I don't buy the liability argument, either.

If someone doesn't like what is playing at music in the park, nobody is forcing them to listen to it. I am sure that there would be unpaid vollunteers that would be willing to play christian music so it would not cost the taxpayers anything.

what is religious music anyway? if rock around the clock was played in a church or church revival, would it be considered church music? if someone made rock of ages into rock, jazz, etc, what would be its genre? music is just written notes on a scale and interpretted by instruments and the players. listen to what pleases you.

Um, did you actually read the letter? He said right in there that anyone can express their religious beliefs anytiome and anywhere they want. He basically just said the government should not be expected to provide religous music.

The problem with you Harvey is your position on Government. I've heard your rants at Council Meetings and you obviously do not like Government; which is why, I feel, you ran for City Council. This time, you crossed the line with by using your governmental views to express your thoughts on religion or the expression of religion in public. You are cancerous to our City and our Council. Please don't run again.
