March 18, 2012 update:
The TAG political party hasn't had a meeting since Feb. 28, 2012. At that meeting all Trustees stated they were backing away from TAG and wouldn't be attending steering committee meetings, but would remain members. They didn't like me stating that the same people control TAG.
So here is your proof. The same people/person runs and controls TAG and presently holds the position of Chair of the Union Bay Improvement District.
The TAG controllers advise members of what they want them to know. Have members been advised of all information or are they being fed certain information while keeping secret matters that might change the outcome of their plans?
Why didn't TAG rally its members when they received documents from two of TAG's duly elected Trustees proving our government was in fact dysfunctional and no longer operating as a Board? Why did the Leader of TAG deliberately keep that information from its members since she had it typed up and ready to distribute? What changed her mind? A draft copy was sent to me and a few days later I received an email from the Leader of TAG asking me to delete it. The Leader of TAG (now Chair of UBID) could have supported Bruce and Cleve but instead, left them to defend themselves alone which was a complete about face from the constant nattering about attending meetings and supporting our Trustees. Best Bullshit Award.
When we were illegally locked out by our government why didn't TAG rally its members to protest this complete loss of democracy?
Why did the leaders of TAG sit on their asses from January 2011 until April 2011 and do absolutely nothing for our community?
We have been fed more bullshit folks - just another example of those who must have absolute power and control. That's why nothing happened until April 2011. We do not have an open honest an accountable government.
We have those who will not give up control of TAG and information is being kept from us because of the connection with the Chair of UBID.
Apparently, they're doing a Charlton Heston about turning over the email addresses.

Subject: UBID Board Meeting
Hi to all TAG members and supporters.
This is a friendly reminder of the upcoming UBID board meeting to be held on Wednesday, March 21st at 7:00PM at the UBID board room. We hope to see you there.
This email brings back memories of the Fake Union Bay Residents' Association (KIP's Puppets). I received emails until I asked "who made the decision to use Langley Lake if the referendum outcome was "Yes"? President and Founder Susan Hargreaves refused to ever answer that simple question.
Although I wasn't a member of TAG, I would receive the info put out by TAG, UNTIL I asked questions. No more emails.
I'm not a flunky to anyone. I will believe you until I have reason not to. When I have reason to believe there is deception - I will absolutely be asking questions.
My most effective questions are ones I already know the answer.
NOTE TO TAG: Who is giving Mary Reynolds these emails?
Well, it looks like I made a big mistake. Turns out the TAG meeting was for members only. These guys don't like me asking questions either - go figure.
It's what I do.
The member who was chairing the meeting didn't approve of my concerns over the TAG website being controlled (owned) by the present Chair of the Union Bay Improvement District and her spouse (unelected). My very direct question which was "You still control it (TAG)?" The response I received was shrugged shoulders as though they had no knowledge of anything regarding ownership. It's those questions - when I already know the answer.
It is my opinion that the responsibility to keep the community informed should not rest with one individual. We have already lived through that - why are we willing to repeat it?
I love watching people stand up and try to convince everyone how wonderful they are. How they've worked so hard on behalf of everyone, it was such a struggle, but they hung in .........blah blah blah.
Yes, and so it went. I thought it would be about how things would change from the 'regular old ways'. No - it's business as usual.
I've had many of my questions answered (not by the new board), but the one I have asked so many times and still have not received an answer which can be relied upon. The question is: What is the policy regarding correspondence sent to the Board?
How come the Chair becomes King or Queen?
I can't find anything in the bylaws.
Hey - how come Leo was there - he told me he wasn't a member!
There are a couple of sniggly things that keep running through my mind. The thing I perceive as 'screwing with democracy' by manipulating a candidate to withdraw. And, that (now famous) caucus meeting.
Oh god - I'm just itching to make fun of the power point presentation - holding it in.............aaaaaaaagaggggghghhhhhhhhh
so much to choose from.............aaaaaaaggggghghhhhh
