I was just listening to Free For All Friday, where it was said that a great deal of people still work in Flagler County. Not all residents over the age of 55 are retired. How can we, the working of Flager County have our voices and "Be part of this important conversation" if the meeting is held 8:45AM to 11AM as the one held yesterday.
Do the people holding these meetings which always seem to be during working hours even care about the voices of the working???
Or do they just want to hear from the retired who are home ??
I am almost 61 and still working full time.
