Schuldt Uses Video To Expose SEWRPC

Video is such a powerful too - - as illustrated by blogger Gretchen Schuldt's video clips from SEWRPC meetings that expose the agency dismissive relationship to its public mission.

SEWRPC does not audio or video tape its advisory committee meetings or Commissioners' proceedings - - and its hand-written, then summarized official minutes, which sometimes take weeks or months to post online, do not reflect the meetings' full content or emotion.

A few years ago, I urged SEWRPC to begin to electronically record its meetings in some form - - and I even used Schuldt's occasional tapings as evidence that if a solitary blogger could do it, certainly so could the agency - - but then-deputy director, and now executive director-designee Ken Yunker, did not implement the suggestion.

Little wonder.

He who writes the minutes writes the history.
